double fugue

DUH-bul fyoog


A fugue which has two separate subjects and are both treated in the strict fugal form.
A proper double fugue should consist of two different themes, introduced separately, which eventually are combined so the second theme forms a countersubject. The term double fugue has also been applied to a fugue in which the theme and countersubject appear simultaneously at the beginning of the composition and are regularly associated throughout.
