BACH, Fugue in C Minor, from The Well-Tempered Clavier, Book I (c. 1722) - 1:35 

Quadruple meter, C minor, Harpsichord

Listen for the announcement of the minor-key fugue subject, followed by polyphonic imitation of the subject in the highest voice and in the lowest voice. Notice the final presentation of the subject over a longheld bass tone and contrasting major chord that ends the fugue.
