There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so don't look pretty even though they should sound reasonable (though that depends very much on your hardware/software; mine is a Soundblaster AWE64 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.
There is a competent performance of this Work by the Tolzer Knabenchor and the Concentus musicus Wien, under Nikolaus Harnoncourt, on YouTube starting <A HREF="
