There is no text/lyrics; the File was generated purely for Choral Rehearsing purposes (using a published piano-reduction 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). The Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
There is a competent performance of this Work by the Eton College Chapel Choir. Treble solos by Tom Norrington ('Hear My Prayer') and Adam Berman ('O, For the Wings of a Dove'), on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HM94qVmq-4 .
My thanks to Richard Woodroffe and the Noteworthy Scriptorium for the "loan" of some NWC2 Files used as the basis of my Midi versin.
