How to stop a singing mast?

At an anchorage over the weekend my mast began to hum from what I assume was the perfect windspeed to get it to ring harmonically. With my hand I could feel the vibration on the mast, and locally on the deck around the mast. The wind was not enough to whistle in the rigging, say around 10kts.

Since it did this from 2am to 6am (as a weather front came through) I would like to understand what I need to do to stop this phenomenom.

Anyone else ever expirience their mast "singing" to them?
