“Not Going Home Anymore” is one of the gorgeous pieces from Burt Bacharach’s score for “Butch Cassidy and the Sundance Kid.” While it should be played as a slow waltz, it’s important not to drag it too slowly. There is ample opportunity to take advantage of suspended chords in the accompaniment throughout.
Instrumentation: This piece is presented here in an arrangement for Trombone Quartet or Trombone Choir. Alternatively, any of the parts could be played by Euphoniums/Baritones, or the Bass Trombone line would work well on Tuba as well.
Performance notes: This arrangement will feature the melodic/legato ballad abilities as well as the range of the 1st trombonist. The remaining parts are not too difficult for most players, but the lead will need to be a solid player. A demo recording (video below) is recorded ½ step higher in pitch.
