Here's another version of Opus 113 Fughetta by Giuliani. When I started working on the piece I wanted a larger font so now it covers 3 pages instead of 2. Fingerings have been added in one version and there is also another with no fingerings.
If you are just getting into counterpoint this is good piece to work on. There are sections of three moving voices and also four notes against one. The theme plays in the upper voice and then is repeated in the lowest voice with chordal accompaniment above and there are some sections of 3 voices in similar rhythms which are a bit of a fingering tangle.
I went through the piece analyzing the harmonic changes and that makes the piece a lot clearer. For example the theme is stated in the key of G and then at bar 8 it is in the key of the dominant, D major. At bar 18 it shifts to B minor and then at 36 into E minor. At 42 it plays a variation in C major for 2 bars and then into A minor at 44. After some episodic stuff the theme states in the lower voice at bar 59 in C major. At bar 68 there is a restatement of the theme in the original key of G and from then to the end it is pretty much running for the barn. If you look at the connecting sections between the keys you can trace the modulations and how Giuliani slips from one key to another. (Doing the same thing with Bach will pay you huge dividends.)
This is an interesting piece that doesn't get played that much but is not wickedly hard, though certainly not easy.
