There are no text/lyrics; each 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). My Website also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
The preparation of these Files was commissioned by the Choeur d'Oratorio de Paris.
My thanks to Jean-Marie Balfourier's "Chorix Partitheque", from which I borrowed some NWC Files.
There is an excellent performance of this Work by the National Chamber Choir of Moldavia (cond. I.Stepan) on YouTube starting at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ve9smEfDL-8.
