Firstly, 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).
Secondly, Numbers 12-19, 24-27, 35, 39, 40, 52, 53, 57-60 have been entered partly from a <I>very</I> old Novello version and partly with the help of Midi Files from Wendell Pyles (see his own Solomon website presently - as of 13th July 2006 - at
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.
