|Comments:||There is no text/lyrics; this File was generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published 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).|
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.
An excellent version of this madrigal is on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XITlmDJ9-Hk. Another is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kfx5tRAMolI. I rather like the - slightly surprising - one at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Hx0UJnE8GBk. There are plenty of others.
