The raised seventh note (leading tone) in the C major scale. This pitch has no solfeggio representation because the actual pitch is the same as the tonic or eighth note (C) in the fixed do system. However, the note name B sharp is necessary in certain instances such as the key of C sharp major where B sharp is the seventh note (leading tone) or A sharp minor where B sharp is the second note (supertonic). The frequencies of the audible pitches of B sharp are notated below.
[Eng.] B sharp;
[Fr.] Si diése (m);
[Ger.] His (n);
[It.] Si diesis (m);
[Sp.] Si sostenido.
