countersubject. In fugue, in addition to the subject, there is often a countersubject appearing in the exposition and probably later also. This is a melodic acc. to the answer and subject and is generally in double counterpoint. The v. which has just given out the subject or answer then proceeds to the countersubject while the next v. gives out the answer or subject, and so on.
