Apparently this Work was at first thought to be misattributed to Handel, and was instead by A. Lotti ("Missa Sapientiae"). However, somewhere I read that it is now believed to be by Handel after all.

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).
Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). The Site alsocontains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
