Webster's 1913 Dictionary
\Hid"den\, p. p. & a.
from {Hide}. Concealed; put out of view; secret; not known;

{Hidden fifths} or {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. Secret is
       opposed to known, and hidden to revealed.

             Bring to light the hidden things of darkness.
                                               --1 Cor. iv.

             My heart, which by a secret harmony Still moves
             with thine, joined in connection sweet.

             By what best way, Whether of open war, or covert
             guile, We now debate.             --Milton.
