in this case the notes are printed there for two reasons. firstly, so
the lead trombone can follow the music, and jump in at the right place
(the 2nd and 3rd trombones have only 8 bars rest printed). the second
reason is quite simply that horns are not always available for brass and
wind orchestras, for which this score was set. in which case, the lead
trombone is to play this part.

thanx, maurizio, that was what i was looking for. now the only thing i'd
need to do is drop the measure rests out of the line of the melody.
(using d,2\rest does not work, as lily puts the rests at the beginning
of the bar rather than in the middle ...)

\notes \relative c'' {
\context Voice = tenor <
  \context Thread = tenorI {
    e2 ( ) dis2 d8 ( h16 cis d8 e16 ) d d8 ( ) cis c4
    c2 ( h4 ) c h16 ( c d4 c16 ) h  a8 a16 ( ) h c8-. c16 ( ) d
  \context Thread = baritone {

thanks again,
