a) For technical reasons it may not always seem that one or other of each pair of voices - Sops 1 and 2, for instance - are singing the correct duration of note when they are singing the same note.
b) Just occasionally one voice - the Semi-chorus Sopranos in at least one place, and the Chorus 2 Sopranos in at least one other - are themselves divided.
c) The Semi-chorus doesn't sing much, so it has in these Files been assumed that when they're not doing their own thing they will be singing the relevant Chorus 1 parts.
Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work.
Note that the Work has been divided up in two different ways. First, each of Parts 1 and 2 has been provided as a whole continuous File. Second, each Part has (for the most part) been broken into the sections listed at the back of the Score.
In some - but not all - cases each section overlaps slightly at each end with its neighboring sections.
Part 1 is on the previous page,
