The Pipe Organ Calendar. The funny and surprising thing: You get that beauty in two styles. There are more pipe organ calendars on the market. But they all have one thing in common. They are all a combination of a picture section and a grid section. All of them. However, the title pages of all pipe organ calendars seem to provide the same content. Learn more down this page.
No grid is a cool idea?

By the way, this whole page on my website is not created to inform you "quick and to the point", but Peter, my husband, designed it to entertain you. Regarding the subject of pipe organ wall calendars, pipe organs, calendars in general and what you can do with a EUROPEAN STYLE wall calendar, which doesn't work like its 50:50 calendar counterpart. So, just let him please impress you, folks.
This April page of my organ pipe calendar is European Style. Which means, there is no grid. The calendar – that is to say the weekdays and the numbers of the days – comes as a part of the overall artwork. So, yes, there is no space, to put in a note, an anniversary or the birthday of Grandma. Watch all monthly pages of the current year organ pipe calendar way below on this page or use the shortcut with a click here and return after your "pipe organ adventure".
However, you do need

organ wall calendar?

Title page both styles.
Inside page (European style).
Inside page (50:50 style).
On the left side is a picture of a composers calendar, how you discover it on "Google Images". Both calendar styles – the European style and the 50:50 style, when it comes to the title page – look the same. However, what you don't discover with that particular title pic, is what the calendar looks like after January 1st. Believe it or not, even we had a hard time, how to display the difference and how to describe it.
In the picture in the middle (... above) you see, how all 12 monthly pages look like, if you decide for a portrait format EUROPEAN STYLE calendar: The art work is as large as the title picture. On the rights side is, what you get, if you decide for a portrait format 50:50 STYLE calendar: The art work is halved in size inside and is replaced by the "tool section": The grid.
Discover the difference – or, in the case, you find my description complicated and "poor" – in many examples where I show you the difference between EUROPEAN STYLE monthly pages and 50:50 STYLE monthly pages in several rooms of a house, in an apartment, in an office, in 2 kids' rooms and a waiting / reception area.
One more composers calendar: It's the same thing with the title page on "Google Images": There, both styles front pages of each calendar look the same. However, they are different when you go from there to every inside page. Not only this is true, but the landscape format and the portrait format are different, too.
While the inside pages in EUROPEAN STYLE are the same size as the front page of every calendar, it is different with a 50:50 style calendar: Its size doubles, as the "art part" remains the upper and the grid in the same size adds. However: The art portion remains the same size as the title, but a gigantic "toll = grid section" adds.

This calendar shows 12 combinations, these are the famous classic musicians and the cities which are related to them. You might like this one and want to explore the 12 monthly calendar pages. Just click on this link.
Another composers calendar to discover. A mixture between traditional portraits of the musicians and a modern notes and music collage. The full format artwork is just amazing. You can not compare this size with the smaller and the smallest calendars we offer. Plus, the calendar at the bottom is just an art proportion. Plus ... no space to leave hints. You find this combination great and want to enjoy all 12 combinations. That is possible here.
This is a little complicating and I found this out not earlier than after 3 years, shortly after the wife of my US cousin asked me whether I believe offering calendars seems to be a good idea, when everyone uses his or her smartphone. I didn't understand what she meant, so we jumped on the internet, and she showed me for the first time, how a calendar was "constructed" which we today call a "50:50" style calendar.
That was shortly before Christmas, and we wanted to find out, how the majority of wall calendars - no matter which subject - looked in the USA. While I was shopping for shoes, Peter investigated in a special calendar shop inside a mall with all kinds of calendar subjects. He found out, 95 out of 100 calendars followed this 50:50 philosophy.
Here in Germany, 50:50 calendars are a tiny fraction, when it comes to nice wall calendars and even later we found out they call those calendars brochure calendars, which doesn#t have to make sens e for you now. Almost 100 percent of all wall calendars in the way we offer it, are what we today call "EUROPEAN STYLE".
After that hint of our friends / cousin we focused on a description to make clear, that we only offer these European style calendars, and in particular these European style pipe organ calendars. And then ... we found ... Zazzle. And this gift platform Zazzle offers an option for us, to offer both styles, which is European style and 50:50 style. Which today for you means, you can order them both ways. As a cool decoration art work ... or as a tool, to leave in the hints around future dates and appointments. Only my shop "Bach 4 You" offers such a possibility. One calendar, two styles, three sizes.
What a sweetie That is how calendars looked like in 1925.
Again – maybe in other words – back to the hard to explain difference between a portrait format and a landscape format, when it comes to explain the difference between a EUROPEAN STYLE calendar and a 50:50 STYLE calendar. In an upright format calendar the two pics above show the two different styles, when you get to the January page and the following months. The decoration part is halved by 50 % to make place for the grid, the tool. Get a better feeling in the photo collection down that page. So an upright calendar with a particular size minimizes the nice portion by 50 % when it comes to enjoy the 12 monthly pages. It is different with a landscape calendar, as the art part remains the same size, but an "ugly but beneficial" section ads. The size of the whole. See the example below.
Complicated, complicated: On the left side is, how that particular calendar looks on the "Google Images" result, when you put in "composers calendars" or in our case "pipe organ calendars". Same size, however, what you find out about this calendar: It is landscape format. The difference begins, when you get to the first monthly page and all the 11 following inside pages: The format doubles with a 50:50 style upright calendar, but if you want the calendar to "ennoble" a dining room or an area, which actually is no "working space" the added 100 % is an "ugly but useful" grid section. Confused because of a poor description. Check on the picture section below, and it will clear up soon.

Johann Sebastian Bach is the best pipe organ player ever? How come? Read more below.
There is no doubt, Johann Sebastian Bach is a pipe organ specialist like no other musician on Earth. What most people know is, that he was a pipe organ player. Fewer folks know, that he was a composer, who "invented" many organ pieces, among them the probably most famous organ work "Toccata". However, almost nobody knows that Bach was - even in his young years - a really well-known organ expert. No other musicians combine these "three organ disciplines".
However, the best pipe organ player! How can you measure such a thing? We have to find a "tool" how to figure that out. Let us research and combine, what other personalities - in more than 250 years - said about Bach and "his competitors" and we find out, that no other composer in the league of Bach got so much special honor like the Royal Polish and Electoral Saxon Court Composer (Bach) did. More famous musicians, like Handel, Beethoven, Mozart and all the other legends could not compete with Bach in this discipline". And even if somebody finds, that this musician or that composer is a better organ player - however, it's a matter of taste, too - there is one proof, which makes Bach the best of all. It is said, that Bach had gigantic hands, so he was able to reach more keys than most of his "competitors" (... in our game). But that's not all. He was so enthusiastic and ambitious, that he is said to use a stick in his mouth to play those keys, which he couldn't reach, when both of his hands and his to feet were occupied. So he is the only musician, of which history tells, who operated this "Queen of all Instruments" with his 2 hands, his two feet and his mouth. That ... makes him the most skilled and most famous pipe organ player in the world and of all time.
These organ calendars are available – in both, the European style and in the 50:50 style (with grid) – and that is true in 3 sizes each style. Just send me a mail, if you want to learn more. Check whether there are even value priced . Keep in mind, it's complicated: There are always some copies of the previous years left (European style). We can print each one, if there is no copy left (European style), you can get each one "hot of the press, printed just for you. You can get previous editions adapted to the year of your choice (European style) and you can decide for every combination with a grid (50:50 style).
Johann Nicolaus Forkel, 1st biographer of Johann Sebastian Bach, based his work on conversations with the master's sons, and he was the one, who told about that cool story about the Thomas Cantor and the story of operating the pipe organ with a stick in his mouth. This first of some 7,000 Bach biographies dates from the year 1788.
The only biography about Johann Sebastian Bach, that dates earlier than Johann Nicolaus Forkel's biography is the (...actually short) biography of his son Carl Philipp Emanuel and two more authors, written in 1750 and published in 1754, the Necrology for J.S. Bach.
The most famous Johann Sebastian Bach Monument in Leipzig, Saxony in Germany. However, it's only one of two Bach monuments in this music metropolis.
