There appear to be many different versions of this Work, with several clearly written by Handel himself. The IMSLP reference above includes both an Orchestral version (edited by Fr. Chrysander), in English and German, and a Vocal version (L. Hellwig), in German. There is also an unattributed English Vocal Score (similar to but not the same as the German one). This latter was used to make most of the Files below.
There is an excellent, and "complete", performance of this Work by the Philharmonia Baroque Orchestra Chorale, under Nicholas McGegan, on YouTube at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z5q6KZTe2NQ.
The Scriptorium ZIP File contains Sections - of the type Part A Scene B No C - which exist in the IMSLP Chrysander Orchestral Score but not in the Vocal Score version first used to make these Files.
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).
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.
