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).
My Website (above) also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There are a few versions of this on YouTube. An excellent one is at; another is at (according to the Oxford Book of Madrigals and Partsongs, this really is how it should be performed!).
It is probably almost impossible to notate this the way it should actually be sung, so the best the singer can do is learn it by, and then sing it from, the heart!
