There are no text/lyrics; this File was generated (using a CPDL piano-reduction Score) purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes, and so doesn't look pretty even though it 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). My Website (above) also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is an excellent performance of this Work by the Choir of Durham Cathedral on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yox6Ihan004
