There are no text/lyrics; this 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).
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, all two plus hours of it, by the London Symphony Chorus and the London Symphony Orchestra (Roderick Elms - organ), under Richard Hickox, on YouTube starting <A HREF="https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2T0elGgT5fMquot target="_blank">here</A>.
