There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using the Novello piano-reduction Score), and so don't look pretty even though they sound reasonable (at least, they do on my Soundblaster AWE 64 Gold).
Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). The Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which .nwc versions may be available.
