Notes On Music

“Hocket” is an interesting technique popular in vocal music of the 13th and 14th centuries, most often for two voices, in which the voices take turns singing a melody while the other rests.
For example, if you and a friend were to sing Row, Row, Row Your Boat, alternately singing a short phrase and then resting while the other continues the sequence, you would be engaging in hocket.
