Firstly, 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).
Secondly, as in a number of the longer Handel Works the commonly-available Scores miss out several of the sections; in the list above these are marked originally "Not available", but recently I have obtained versions of them from the Kalmus Miniature Score (K 01319), and they are now included.
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.
