This piece comes with, but before, Weelke's "Hence, care, thou art too cruel". The two are intended to be sung one after the other. A decent YouTube version is at https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ZobIf8KBcH4 - which, I now see, includes the following "Hence, care ..."!
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).
Voice-emphasised Midi Files of the whole work can be downloaded for free from my Website (above). My Website (above) also contains Midi Files for several rather more modern Composers, for which NWC versions may be available.
