This is a fontspec feature (the doc is accessible on the Mac for example with "texdoc fontspec" in Terminal):

- When you just use a font once or twice, you can write

	{\fontspec{Lucida Blackletter OT} This is a once occurrence of Lucida Blackletter.}

- If you plan to use the font several times, you can use instead

	\newfontface\LucidaBlackletter{Lucida Blackletter OT}
	{\LucidaBlackletter This is a first fragment in Lucida Blackletter.}
	{\LucidaBlackletter And a second fragment.}

So in your case you can just write

	{\fontspec{Lucida Blackletter OT} OpenType}


	\newfontface\LucidaBlackletter{Lucida Blackletter OT}
	{\LucidaBlackletter OpenType}

Hope this helps,
