Notes: C, Db, D#, E, F, Gb, Ab, and Bb - Key: C - Origin: Jewish - Category: Nonatonic or Ennatonic Scales
The C Ahava Rabba uses nine notes per octave. Because of this same reason it is a member of the so called Nonatonic or Ennatonic -scales that have Nine-note (or Nine-tone). On the piano keyboard, it is made up of five black keys: Db, D#, Gb, Ab, and Bb and three white keys: C, E, and F. This combination makes this scale - as well as the C Adonai Malakh, C Chad Gadyo, and C Jewish I - as great choices for composing or improvising Jewish music.
If we take a look a the key signature of the C Ahava Rabba Scale we can find it has four flats and one sharps. Therefore, on sheet music you will find five accidentals on the score. The notes of this scale are: C, Db, D#, E, F, Gb, Ab, and Bb.
