Trios for ITW


If you have composed or arranged a work for trombone(s), and would like to offer it for others to perform during ITW, please contact us at itw AT trombone DOT net … and thank you!

These trios are just part of the story. Learn more about International Trombone Week here.

David Caldwell: Three for Three: Catches for Young Trombonists

Note: Each of these pieces is a “catch” – a kind of round popular in England in the 17th and 18th centuries – written for three voices. Catches were sung by catch clubs, groups of men who got together in the evening, usually over a punch bowl, to sing catches, rounds and glees. (Our glee clubs are their descendants.) The lyrics of catches often contain jokes, puns and double meanings, some of which are lost when playing them on the trombone.
