Does anyone know where I can find a recording of what the second violin part is supposed to sound like for Handel's Messiah?

 

I would appreciate any help that can be offered. I would even pay for it if the price is reasonable.

Thanks for posting that. I have the score. I was just taking a shot in the dark and see if someone knows where I can find a recording of the 2nd violin part. I know that probably won't happen. My biggest concern is getting the tempo down. I found a youtube video of the complete Messiah. I'm earmarking where the different numbers start and doing it that way. I can site read pretty good.

Can you isolate tracks of existing music? I have GarageBand on my Mac but sadly don't do a lot of electronic music stuff. I wonder if something like that could pull out tracks????dunno

I guess it's not common to record individual parts from orchestra scores. :-(

I suppose that recording individual tracks plays second fiddle to getting the whole orchestra to sound good on the recording....

Well, I got the tempo right. The rest should be okay for me. I am confident that i will pull this off.
