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 also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
My thanks to Dennis Drews and the ChoralTech MIDI/MP3 Library - http://www.choraltech.us/index.htm - whose Midi Files I used as the starting point for my own.</P>
There is an excellent performance of this Work by Groot Omroepkoor under Sigvards Klava on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=pjRt-o0XwZ4.
