There is no text/lyrics; the File was generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), 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).
There is a competent performance of this Work by Marsh Chapel, under Scott Allen Jarrett, on YouTube at
My thanks to Mike Gibson,, whose NWC2 Score I started from.
The Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
