bulletMIDI files to help you practice
bulletJohn's MIDI Choral Music <---Very good site; all choruses with emphasized parts; numbering is different from Schirmer.  Navigate to Messiah practice pages by choosing "Click here to go straight to the major Works and Anthems Composer List"-->"Handel"-->"Messiah"
bullet CyberBass <---All choruses with emphasized parts.
bulletUltimate.com <---All choruses with emphasized parts.
bullet Bot Productions <---Complete oratorio.  Parts are not emphasized.

Programs (some free) to play MIDI files

The MIDI files can be played on your computer system by music player software like Windows Media Player and Real Player.  However, more control of the music can be achieved with programs like Cakewalk Music Creator, Anvil Studio, MuseScore and Quartz Audio Master.  All of these programs allow you to view the score (the free version of Anvil Studio only lets you see one track at a time, however) and to limit what parts play.  You can also compose your own scores for practice.  Some of the versions referenced below are limited in some way because they are free or demo versions that are designed to get you to buy more advanced versions, but they are all quite usable.

bulletMuseScore (FREE; Works on Windows and Linux):  <---Very versatile program!

bulletAnvil Studio FREE version:  <---Not as versatile as MuseScore unless you pay for add-ons.
