English Moderns?


I'm looking for a good serif for a project with a late 19th century look to it (Alternate Gothic and Clarendon bold are also involved).

I think I'd like to use something like Brunel (http://www.christianschwartz.com/brunel.shtml) or Benton Modern Display (http://www.fontbureau.com/fonts/BentonModernDisplay/).

The former seems to be in limited release and the latter could work but I'd like to know what other similar fonts are out there. I tried to search for information on "English Modern" (Which is what the designer says Brunel is) but I can't find anything.

I know the moderns like Bodoni, Century and Modern No. 20 but I don't think they're right for this.

What do you think?
