Whole Rest

Semibreve Rest

A whole-rest (also known as "whole-note-rest" or "semibreve rest") has the same value as a whole-note.

In a 4/4 time signature (Common Time), a whole-rest refers to a pause of a whole-measure.

In a five-line musical staff, the whole-rest is marked below the fourth line (the lowest line is the first).
