Hocket('hocket' is an old word for 'hiccup') the term hocket is used in various ways. In modern parlance it refers to a musical technique by which two or more voices or instruments sing or play in alternation. When one voice stops after one or a few notes, another begins, and so on.

Hokku(Japanese) in Japanese poetry, the term hokku literally means "starting verse." A hokku was the first starting link of a much longer chain of verses known as renga or linked verse. The hokku was traditionally three lines long, with a syllable count of 5/7/5 syllables in the three lines (i.e., the hokku was identical in structure to the modern haiku, the independent genre that later developed out of the hokku). The hokku was always the the most important and best known part of a renga much in the way that the first verse and chorus of a popular song are often well-known even when the other verses are poorly known or ignored. Because the hokku ultimately evolves into what we today call the haiku, it is common to the find scholars make a distinction between "modern haiku" (haiku) and "classical haiku" (hokku)

Where the atomist believes that any whole can be broken down or analyzed into its separate parts and the relationships between them, the holist maintains that the whole is primary and often greater than the sum of its parts.

in music, the term is met when discussing those cultures that have remained relatively free of outside influences. Irish music, particularly that associated with Irish dancing, has been consciously preserved and is still celebrated as part of the island's rich history. One may hear the influence of Irish music on the culture of other lands, but within the island itself the old tunes and the old way of dancing, continue to flourish relatively untouched by the cultures of other societies. This may not be the case for much longer. Voice of America reports: "in just one decade, Ireland has gone from being a net-exporter, to being a net-importer of people. The country that famously supplied the United States with more than a million and a half immigrants between 1845 and 1860, and which continued to flood America's shores well into the 20th century, is now home to about four hundred thousand immigrants from as far away as China and South Africa"
in music, the term is met also when discussing music that changes little rhythmically or texturally as the piece progresses.

(French) homophonic
Homophoniccommonly used to mean music written in a chordal or familiar style (i.e. homophony), as opposed to music that is polyphonic (having many independent parts) or antiphonic (where musical lines alternate)
many commentators use this term for music in which one voice leading melodically, is supported by an accompaniment in chordal or in a somewhat more elaborate style. On the basis of this definition, practically all music of the nineteenth century is homophonic, the term being used as the opposite of polyphonic, which is where every part is making an equivalent contribution to the musical whole
Homophonie(German f.) homophony, that is part-music in which all the voices move in the same rhythm (which is, in fact, the literal meaning of the Greek term), equivalent to the terms 'strict chordal style' or 'familiar style'.

Honky punka mix of honky tonk music and punk rock
Honky-tonk effectsome upright pianos use the middle pedal as a practice pedal, which lowers a thick piece of felt between the hammers and strings, muffling the tone. A special feature is the honky-tonk effect produced with the middle pedal being used to lower metal studded tap strips between the hammer and the string. This is often called a 'zither', 'harp' or 'mando'
there is a method for creating the 'Honky-Tonk' effect via tuning. However, there is no agreement about exactly how it should be accomplished. One point of agreement is that the effect is created by shifting the pitch of one string per note in the entire tri-chord section by 2-5 Hz, which causes a very noticeable 'twanging' sound. A few people also said that the lower couple of octaves should be left alone.
Another point that was mentioned by a few people was the need for a fairly high degree of consistency. Realistically speaking, this seems to eliminate deviating the pitch by any particular number of cents since a 3 Hz shift at A=440 Hz would be about a 12 cent shift, while the same cents shift at A=880 Hz would be about a 7 Hz shift in frequency.
Honky-tonk (music)(English, Honkytonk (German n.)) named after a type of bar common throughout the southern United States, also called 'Honkatonk' or 'Honkey-tonk', the first 'honky tonk' music was first played by country music bands in and around Texas during the 1930s and 1940s. Honky Tonk bands often used electric instruments and produced a strong, rhythm-centred style of piano playing related to ragtime that went on to influence boogie woogie and rock and roll. Honky Tonk music is associated with uprooted rural people, and its lyrics deal chiefly with the social problems associated with their migration. The music of Hank Williams, Lefty Frizzell, and Ernest Tubb is perhaps most representative of the Honky Tonk style. By the last third of the twentieth century, the term was being applied to what had formerly been called 'Hillbilly Music' and more recently 'Country Music'

horn has been referred to as a natural plastic and is similar to modern thermoplastics in that it tends to revert to its original shape. Despite the simple processes that remain unchanged in working horn, the horner's experience and judgement are critical in overcoming this tendency to revert to its original shape. The colours of horn range from ebony to shades of cream and when subjected to heat and pressure it can become translucent. The use of horn was universal wherever there were herds of cattle, goats and flocks of sheep and certain antelopes. Despite being a unique and extremely versatile resource horn is almost forgotten as a raw material. Its use since ancient times for drinking horns, containers and sounding horns is well documented. It was also used for many items essential to daily life such as combs, spoons, knife and tool handles, horn cups and objects of great beauty. In some cases horn objects had a symbolic significance

Hornwerkduring the Middle ages numerous cities, monasteries and cloisters had mechanical organs built into their gateways and fortification towers. The only organ to have survived in its entirety until today is the organ at the fortress of Hohensalzburg. Archbishop Leonhard von Keutschach supposedly had it built in 1502 in order to wake the town inhabitants at four in the morning and to signal the time for bed at seven in the evening. This open air instrument was constructed in the manner of a block organ; it has only metal pipes - 135 of them, for the most part original - bellows and wind box. There is no key board to play it. If the bellows are operated a much amplified F-A-C chord results in a pronounced third; the signalling "roar" that can be heard over a wide distance and which, in Salzburg, has led to the addition of the name "bull" to the descriptive term "horn"

Humanismalthough the term 'humanism' was coined in 1808 by F.J. Niethammer, to describe a program of study distinct from science and engineering, umanista, or 'humanist', as employed in the fifteenth century, described a professional group of teachers whose subject matter consisted of those areas that were called studia humanitatis. The studia humanitatis originated in the middle ages and comprised the trivium and the quadrivium, educational disciplines that lay outside theology and natural science. Humanism was opposed to a particular brand of logic known as Scholasticism (where language was used to produce certainty, focussing on syllogism, which is the construction of a truthful conclusion from truthful premises); rather, it developed a science of logic based on discovering arguments that would persuade people of the truth of what they were saying rather than convincing them of the certainty of that truth. While the 'humanist' scholars of the Renaissance made great strides and discoveries in this field, humanistic studies were really a product of the middle ages, of what others have called the Italian proto-Renaissance, of those who looked to Francesco Petrarca (Petrarch) (1304-1374) as their inspiration

Hymn(English, Swedish) inno (Italian m.), Hymne (German f.), cantique (French m.), hymne (French m.), himno (Spanish m.), A religious song of praise (consisting of one or more repeating rhythmical stanzas) or anthem. Strictly speaking, a hymn is directed to Deity or celebrates divine attributes or activity, as contrasted with a gospel song or devotional lyric. Examples of hymns are A Mighty Fortress Is Our God (Martin Luther), Immortal, Invisible, God Only Wise (Walter C. Smith) or Crown Him with Many Crowns (Matthew Bridges)
Thomas Aquinas, in the introduction to his commentary on the Psalms, defined the Christian hymn thus: Hymnus est laus Dei cum cantico; canticum autem exultatio mentis de aeternis habita, prorumpens in vocem (Latin: a hymn is the praise of God with song; a song is the exultation of the mind dwelling on eternal things, bursting forth in the voice)
Andrew Wymer, writing to Sharper Iron Forums-Church and Ministry Matters, answering a query 'What makes a song a hymn", comments: the definition of the term 'hymn' has changed throughout the centuries to a more stringent meaning presently in part due to the emergence of the need to delineate between the somewhat recent (beginning in full with English hymnody and translating into American hymnody) influx of subjective and emotionally based repertoire which some hymnologists don't believe merits the 'hymn' title, but rather should be called a spiritual song. (to use the convenient yet possibly extra-biblical meanings some read into this tri-partite understanding of Christian song) Thus, the terms for Christian song have in some cases become more specialized and clearly delineated from the early patristic simplicity

Hyperdorian and Hypodorian modesin the ancient Greek system, the Dorian mode was based on the Dorian tetrachord: a sequence of rising intervals of a semitone followed by two whole tones. Applied to a whole octave, the Dorian mode was built upon two Dorian tetrachords separated by a whole tone. This is the same as playing all the white notes of a piano from E to E: E F G A | B C D E. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at bottom of the scale produces the Hypodorian mode (i.e. below Dorian): A | B C D E | (E) F G A. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at the top of the scale produces the Hyperdorian mode (i.e. above Dorian), which is effectively the same as the Mixolydian mode: B C D E | (E) F G A | B. The ancient Greek Dorian mode is the same as the mediaeval and modern Phrygian mode while the ancient Greek Hypodorian mode is the same as the mediaeval and modern Aeolian mode
Hyperinstrumentsthe composer Tod Machover composed Begin Again Again ... in 1991 as the first in a series of 'hyperinstruments' compositions. Designed for expert performers and drawing upon their virtuoso skills to augment the musicality, virtuosity, and creativity of their performances, Hyperinstruments collect information via sensors that measure aspects of performance technique, such as hand position or bow pressure, and use that information to affect different aspects of the music. Machover observes: "The better you play, the better the computer reacts."
Hyperlydian and Hypolydian modesin the ancient Greek system, the Lydian mode was based on the Lydian tetrachord: a sequence of rising intervals of two whole tones followed by a semitone. Applied to a whole octave, the Lydian mode was built upon two Lydian tetrachords separated by a whole tone. This is identical to the modern major mode: C D E F | G A B C. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at bottom of the scale produces the Hypolydian mode (i.e. below Lydian): F | G A B C | (C) D E F. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at the top of the scale produces the Hyperlydian mode (i.e. above Lydian), which is effectively the same as the Hypophrygian mode: G A B C | (C) D E F | G. The ancient Greek Lydian mode is the same as the mediaeval and modern Ionian mode or major mode

Hypermetrelarge-scale metre (as opposed to surface-level metre) created by hypermeasures which consist of hyperbeats
Hyperphrygian and Hypophrygian modein the ancient Greek system the Phrygian mode was based on the Phrygian tetrachord: a sequence of rising intervals of a whole tone, followed by a semitone, followed by a whole tone. Applied to a whole octave, the Phrygian mode was built upon two Phrygian tetrachords separated by a whole tone. This is the same as playing all the white notes on a piano keyboard from D to D: D E F G | A B C D. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at bottom of the scale produces the Hypophrygian mode (i.e. below Phrygian): G | A B C D | (D) E F G. Placing the two tetrachords together, and the single tone at the top of the scale produces the Hyperphrygian mode (i.e. above Phrygian), which is effectively the same as the Hypodorian mode: A B C D | (D) E F G | A. The ancient Greek Phrygian mode is the same as the mediaeval and modern Dorian mode
