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.
This is an alternative version to the Henry Lemoine Score version I posted some years ago. The main differences are the backing and that it's not "swung". In the Lemoine version the music is "swung" - that is, pairs of quavers are implemented either as quaver+semi-quaver as a triplet, or as a dotted quaver+semi-quaver (see http://www2.siba.fi/muste1/index.php?id=99&la=en). There is an excellent - "swung" - performance of this Work by King's College, Cambridge on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tJ9Ycy3GVOI.
