Composer's Notes:
A Page from the Natural Light was commissioned by trombonist Ronald Wilkins for a tour as soloist with the University of Texas at San Antonio Wind Ensemble. The piece uses snippets of improvised solos by Ron Wilkins as thematic material, and the cadenza is a written transcription of the cadenza improvised by Wilkins in the premiere performance of the piece.
