Vocal = voice.

Vocal music is music which, generally, features or emphasizes the voice, either solo or a group, chorus.

Early Gregorian Chant is a single vocal line sung by a number of singers, later medieval vocal music had polyphony, part singing, for chorus. The earlier forms of this were 'purely' vocal in that they used only voices and no instruments.

Unaccompanied choral music is called 'Acapella' - stemming from the early tradition of vocal music without instruments, as sung 'in the chapel. '.

Anything sung, then, generically, is 'vocal music. '.
