Hidden Hid"den, p. p. & a. from {Hide}. Concealed; put out of view; secret; not known; mysterious. [1913 Webster]

{Hidden fifths} or {Hidden octaves} (Mus.), consecutive fifths or octaves, not sounded, but suggested or implied in the parallel motion of two parts towards a fifth or an octave.

Syn: {Hidden}, {Secret}, {Covert}.

Usage: Hidden may denote either known to on one; as, a hidden disease; or intentionally concealed; as, a hidden purpose of revenge. Secret denotes that the thing is known only to the party or parties concerned; as, a secret conspiracy. Covert literally denotes what is not open or avowed; as, a covert plan; but is often applied to what we mean shall be understood, without openly expressing it; as, a covert allusion.
