too big (caught me by surprise too a while back).

TLC3 therefore says on that one:

The condensed faces have their own support packages notocondensed (for 
Serif and Sans) and notocondensed-mono.
Because of their size, the condensed fonts are not automatically 
included in the TeX Live distribution but need a simple manual 
installation. Follow the instructions at installation 
https://contrib.texlive.info/ for that or download the package from CTAN.
