In english musical notes are A, B, C, D , E, F and G. (no H)

In german are different? I dont understand why some Bach music in B minor are H moll?

the german notation is
Code:
  cis dis   fis gis ais 
  des  es   ges  as  b
 C   D   E F   G   A   H C

don't ask me why, I don't have any ethymologic information on this.

Bach was german, so his music is in H-moll, B-minor is just the english translation.

Maybe the B on his keyboard was broken?

So, there is no B in German for music notation?

the B is the H with one b, same as A with one #,
on the piano the black key between A and H.
this one is called B.

so, if you have german music notated in B-moll, its Bb-minor.

it's just a different notation, where is the problem?

in other languages it's Do Re Mi Fa So La Si Do, they dont even have an A... ;)
and don't ask me, how it is notated in Chinese or on Bali.

I found the answer:


in German music notation the letter B designates B flat while the letter H, which is actually a deformation of a square B, designates B natural

Thanks!

No problem at all, was just curiosity why use a different letter for the bemol tone.

Was because i saw that some Bach music was H Moll and i dont understand why.

Thanks!
