There are no text/lyrics; each 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 also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is an excellent performance of this Work by the Radio Philharmonic Orchestra and the Netherlands Radio Choir led by Jan Willem de Vriend on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=6kD12-ieBBE&vl=en. The oratorio ‘Christus’, is an unfinished piece by Felix Mendelssohn. Mendelssohn started composing it in 1846, but died in 1847. The now performed music, Op. 97, are fragments from the oratoria that were already written.
