An imitative polyphony can best be described as when you were younger in music class and the teacher would have one side of the class start singing "row row row your boat" and then part way through the song have the other half of the class start singing from the beginning.  It is basically two similar melodies sung at the same time, but at different points.

Row Row Polyphony (AKA I revisit middle school)

I haven’t sung this round in an actual choir since about middle school– 8th grade, to be precise. It was fun singing it again, although I wish I’d been a little more consistent with my timing. Eh.

Row Row Polyphony

Creating this song wasn’t hard. The most time-consuming thing was figuring out
what song I wanted to choose that I thought would sound best when repeated right
after itself. The song is The Parting Glass by Ed Sheeran. It’s a cover he does
love in old Irish traditional …

I think this actually ended up really cool. I picked …
