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).
There is an excellent performance of this Work, Conductor: Chris Brammer, on YouTube starting https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=jZ7fBloy5-o .
My Site also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
