I agree with Neco .You can read it ,but it is awkward feeling ,you will be worrying with doubts and insecurity .This will lead then to lack of focus , concentration and you will loose the momentum to express your Will precisely in full power .
I once tried to do that with long ritual ,I looked and sounded ridiculous and in addition I even forgot which direction should follow .When you know something you feel empowered ,especially in the case of chant ,because chant is song-alike .I used to sing in chorus and it was very strange to all of us when we were trying to learn a new song while singing it in same time ,we used to have those weird pauses ,which would disrupt the rhythm and the flow of it .In similar fashion you will face same problems by doing so ,on all three levels .Physical ,because if you have never read it beforehand ,you might pause and think on the words .Mental ,because you will wonder if that is right thing to do or if it will work and the combination of both will disturb your energy flow and expression of your intend .It is always better to have done your memorizing beforehand, for extra boost of confidence and you will avoid all awkwardness of wondering if you do not sound or look just ridiculous .Besides if you are working with certain energies or spirits ,they like to aid or help people who have put significant efforts in their work .The work we put in has a lot to do with the outcome we get .This is the golden rule in everything even in magic ,despite it might not look this way at first glance .
With the experience you start to realize those things ,sloppy energy flow and focus create sloppy results .
