Solution to Canon 6. Fuga canonica in Epidiapente
How many voices are there?
A C-clef and a G-clef indicate that two canonical voices play the Royal theme, together with a third counterpoint voice in the lower section.
Is there a % ? Look hard.
You will find the % at the beginning of measure 11.
What are the transformation principles?
Look at the title.
\93Fuga canonica in Epidiapente\94 means a canonical fugue at the fifth.
The C-clef and G-clef on the same line indicate that the leader starts on middle \93c,\94 and the follower starts a fifth higher on \93g.\94
There are two transformation principles:
1. Time displacement, by a whole ten measures.
2. Space displacement, a fifth higher.
In addition, this canon is actually written as a complete fugue, with contrapuntal development, and modulation of the Royal theme to different keys.
Starting from two superimposed like triangles, or other forms, perform the two transformations.
The result would look like this:
