hidden fifths

HI-din fiths


In part writing, the occurrence of an interval that is not a fifth between two voices, which proceeds to the next chord in similar motion, that produces a fifth in the next chord between the same two voices. In strict counterpoint, hidden fifths are allowed between any two voices except the outer two.
