There are no text/lyrics; these Files were generated purely for Rehearsal purposes (using a published piano-reduction Score), and so don't look pretty even though they should sound reasonable. 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.
There is an interesting performance of this Work by the counter tenor Jaroussky on YouTube starting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tYRpJZSxQVo. Another good performance is by Teresa Berganza, contralto, with the English Chamber Orchestra conducted by Antonio Ros-Marba, on YouTube starting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=eq8VVGkHgiA
