Comments:There is no text/lyrics; this File was generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published 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.
John Rutter's Cambridge Singers sing it well at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=LPQPoA7p0v4 , though this one - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jXcQix2CXAs - where it's sung by soloists, is more like the real thing.
