This three-voice fugue was written as an assignment for my 4th semester music theory course in college. The fugue subject itself is interesting, because it already implies two voices. In this sense, the fugue is more like an organ fugue then a harpsichord fugue. The subject is followed by a real answer (as opposed to a tonal answer) in the exposition because the ascending scalar fragment in the subject is too important to its identity as a subject. After several episodes and middle entries, the fugue enters a circle of fifth sequence which ends on a dramatic dominant pedal. Then, the final statement of the subject in the tonic key occurs in stretto.
