Crucifixus (1999) for clarinet and organ is a Lenten (Passiontide) work. The work was written for and is dedicated to clarinetist Kenneth Grant. Grant's tremendous clarinet playing served as the musical inspiration for this work.

The work is based on the plainsong for the Saturday before Palm Sunday (Ater juste, mundus e non cognovit). The plainsong material is presented throughout both in its native form but also in many possible transformations. The piece focuses on the crucifixion, and while not directly programmatic, looks musically at elements of that event, building up to the final placement of the cross (the formation of the cross musically at measure 56: the organ's
vertical form against the clarinet's horizontal; the musical cross being formed from a gross transformation of the plainsong material) and then dying away slowly to nothingness (the entombment): fading to the clarinet's and the organ's lowest D -- the basis pitch for the plainsong.

It is fully intended that this work be suitable for both worship service and concert settings. The work focuses on the first half of the most important part of the Christian faith (the Crucifixion portion of the Crucifixion and Resurrection.) However, especially in worship service use, it is strongly recommended that the above program notes appear in the bulletin as it will give the congregation members a reference for many of the gestures and moods in thework which could otherwise seem to run contrary to a worship setting.
