This question already has an answer here:

Surely this is easy, but I'm just beginning.

I've created a font and I want to change "My Words Here" without modifying the document font for the rest of the page. I'm sure I just have the syntax wrong. How do I fix it?

\newfontface\Gentium{Gentium}

\begin{Gentium}
\begin{center}
\begin{huge}
\textsc{My Words Here}
\end{huge}
\end{center}
\end{Gentium}

This question has been asked before and already has an answer. If those answers do not fully address your question, please ask a new question.

    
Why did you use those tags? If gregorio is involved, your example should mention it; the first line means nothing. –  egreg Nov 27 '13 at 22:58
    
Sorry - I just realized those tokens and then I saw your comment. I use a script to replace them. I'll remove them. –  BGM Nov 27 '13 at 23:04

Just confine the font change in the environment. Note that Gentium doesn't provide small caps.

\documentclass{article}
\usepackage{fontspec}

\newfontfamily\Gentium[Ligatures=TeX]{Gentium}

\begin{document}
This is in the normal font
\begin{center}
\Gentium\huge
This is in the Gentium font
\end{center}
and back in the normal font.
\end{document}

Thanks, egreg - that' just what I wanted. –  BGM Nov 27 '13 at 23:29

A (probably) general LaTeX solution:

\newcommand{\BGMfont}{%
  \fontencoding{EncodingOfYourFont}% 
  \fontfamily{NameOfYourFont}%
  \fontsize{22}{25}% % about \huge
  \selectfont}
{\BGMfont My Words Here}

Without an illustration of the result, of course, because it is an answer for the first version of your question, when the name of the font was not known.
