This is a very interesting site that has mp3 files of a choral performance in the background, but dominated by a singer singing the part.  They are for purchase as a CD or as a download.  This will work well for singers who learn better by hearing the sound of real voices rather than the digital sound of MIDI files.  CLICK HERE to visit the page with files for ELIJAH.

These YouTube recordings are very nice to work with that SCROLL THROUGH THE SCORE as you listen.  The sounds are digital, but sound very pleasant and orchestral.  There is a playlist for each chorus that has various version of the file customized to each voice part.  CLICK HERE to go to the ChoirParts home page on YouTube and then click the search icon to search for “mendelssohn elijah.”  The files are listed in a hap-hazard order, but they all seem to be there … you’ll just have to look through the list for them.
