This morning’s prelude and postlude exemplify two baroque musical forms, the Fantasia and the Fugue. A Fantasia is a relatively free form in the 16th and 17th centuries, in which a composer exercises creative fancy, usually in contrapuntal form. The Fugue however is more structured and can be described as a texture rather than a form. The normal Fugue opens with a subject or theme in one voice or part. A second voice answers, with the same subject transposed and sometimes slightly altered, usually at the interval of a fifth, while the first voice continues with an accompaniment that may have the character of a countersubject that will be used again as the piece progresses.
