You can freely and lawfully download a printable score for this Work from IMSLP, the Petrucci Music Library - though it may not be exactly the same as the one used to make the Midi Files below, and it probably won't be as good as a proper paid-for engraved and printed score.
There is a competent but restrained performance of this Work by various soloists, the Glyndebourne Chorus, and the Orchestra of the Age of Enlightenment, with William Christie, conductor, on YouTube starting here.
There is another, rather more exuberant, performance here with a much bigger Chorus - the Salzburger BachChor - and the Freiburg Baroque Orchestra conducted by Ivor Bolton.
Here is a "clickable" Table of the available Midi Files for this Work:-
