There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so doesn'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). My Website (above) 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 in French by Radio Filharmonisch Orkest en Groot Omroepkoor under James Gaffigan on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Yi8vWzJCqmI .
