The whole pride and the first work of my Renate Bach Publishing House: the Bach calendar on the topic of "Bach monuments". Completed in 2015, just after the season, which is actually ideal for every calendar offer. Starting in 2017, it will certainly be available every year. Probably even long before many other calendar publishers offer their calendars. In 2024, there are finally 99 + 3 music calendars.


This calendar – like all 99 + 3 music calendars of the Publishing House "Bach 4 You" – will now be available every year ... again and again.  There are more and more Bach fans on earth, and it would be much too bad to stop its appearance after only one or two years. It is available in DIN A4 and in DIN A3 and in DIN A2 (... check here, what's that in centimeters and in inches). All other exciting monthly sheets can be discovered via the store. And here you can get to the store.

The Gregorian Calendar


The Gregorian calendar: It is exactly the calendar that is valid everywhere in the world today. It is named after Pope Gregory XIII, it was created in 1582, and it is a reformation of the calendar valid at that time before. It was actually "ordered" to mankind by the church at that time. That is with the so-called "Papal Bull Inter Gravissimas". This Gregorian Calendar replaced not only the calendar still valid in Germany at that time, but various other calendars as well. Between 1582 and 1949 all states on earth finally aligned themselves after it. The last country to adapt was China in 1949. So the changeover lasted for 367 years.


If you investigate it very closely, then the Gregorian Calendar is the reform of the preceding, the Julian Calendar. However, it is not completely different, but only better. The counting scheme was improved. The change from the Julian Calendar to the Gregorian Calendar must have arrived in Thuringia exactly at the time of Johann Sebastian Bach's birth, because for many years until our modern times Bach scientists were not at all sure when exactly Bach was born. Some gave the date according to the Julian Calendar, others according to the Gregorian Calendar. Finally, they agreed on the Gregorian Calendar and Bach was officially born on March 21, 1685.


From the 4th century to the 16th century, the predecessor of the Gregorian Calendar was already lagging behind by ten whole days. And therefore the Catholic Church prescribed evenly a failure of ten days "at a stretch". Clear that people at this time of mankind were not enthusiastic about it. Even within the Catholic Church this led to irritations, although the order came from no less than the Pope himself.


And the followers of Martin Luther? Well, they certainly didn't want to join this transition. If only for the reason that it was ordered by the Pope, the highest dignitary of the "other fraction," the catholic Christians. Exciting, but unimportant: When this section was written, my Publisher did not yet have a Luther Calendar. In the meantime, it is available in three sizes, and it is one of the inexpensive calendars. One click here brings you directly to the shop and there also to the monthly pages.


The error alone, that is that the year did not correspond to the solar year, was not the essential reason to change the system, but it was subsequently the Easter Celebration, which became more and more incorrect. And who wants to know it now completely exactly: The calendar system of the predecessor of the Gregorian Calendar amounted to on the average 365.25 days and that meant that the Easter Celebration was celebrated every 130 years around a day more incorrectly. This problem, however, was not recognized as late as 1582, but had been noted by a certain Bede Venerabilis, a Benedictine monk as early as in the year 725.


Who now became a real fan about the topic of the Gregorian Calendar, can find excellent further information about it at Wikipedia. Keywords are synodic months, lunar compasses, compustics, Nicholas of Cusa, the prutenic tables of Erasmus Reinhold and you read what Julius Caesar had to do with everything. You learn about the solar equation, about solar years and also the lunar equation and about the fact that the beginning of the year did not always fall on January 1st. In a table it is fantastically represented that starting from 1582 in the Holy Roman Empire the Gregorian Calendar was valid, in the Duchy of Prussia 1612, 1752 then in Scotland and also in the colonies of the Kingdom of England in America, 1873 in the Empire of Japan and finally 1923 – as the last but one country – in the Kingdom of Greece. As mentioned, the very last country was finally the People's Republic of China in 1949.


Shortly after the first Bach calendar, my Calendar Publishing House "Bach 4 You" offered its first composers calendar. Of course, also in DIN A4 and in DIN A3 and of course ... also in DIN A2 (... check here, what's that in centimeters and inches): twelve authentic title pages from various ancient, historical weekly newspapers. A feast for your eyes is this calendar in every office, in every waiting room and of course also at home. In total, there are 9 + 3 inexpensive calendars, plus another 90 hot off the press calendars. So all together these are ...? That's right, exactly 99 + 3 music calendars.


One monthly page in this composers calendar: Even in DIN A4, the illustrated newspaper is clear and cleanly readable, such a high quality are the originals transferred by a special scanner. However, the text on the title page has nothing to do with the composer. In DIN A2 size it is a really impressive wall decoration, in DIN A3 size it is still a cool eye-catcher.




The Julian Calendar


Would you have known? The Julian Calendar is named after Julius Caesar and was introduced by him. Caesar lived from 100 BC to 44 BC, which means that this calendar has been valid for almost 1,700 long years. In the clerical area it is partly still valid today. It was replaced for the first time in 1582 by the Gregorian Calendar in the Holy Roman Empire. And finally in 1949 also in the People's Republic of China as the last state. Thus, almost exactly after 2,000 years. Whether however China calculated around Christ's birth after the Julian Calendar, may be doubted very well and you find with detailed reading with Wikipedia surely a reference to it. In science, by the way, the dating of events before the time of Caesar is also based on this Julian calendar.


Before the Julian Calendar there was a so-called Roman Calendar as a twelve-month lunar calendar. Now and then – irregularly – it was adjusted "a little". By the way, Caesar brought his knowledge about the establishment of a calendar named after him from one of his journeys to Egypt. More precisely from Alexandria. Two astronomers introduced him to the system: a certain Sosigenes and another with the name Acoreus. In Caesar's time, the calendar was not yet called the Julian Calendar, but was named so later to honor Caesar. In fact, already at that time a calendar was established with eleven months of 30 and 31 days and one month of 28 days. However, it was still called the Roman Calendar for a long time. Exciting: First in the leap years February was shortened to 23 days and a 13th month, a leap month was inserted, the so-called "Mensis intercalary". A violent confusion arose because Caesar had ordered that every four years was a leap year. However, the priests in charge decided that Caesar had meant that every third year was meant according to the inclusive count. About the same as when you buy ten sandwiches and get one free. And you postulate at the cash register: You hand in nine coupons, the tenth sandwich would generate the 10th coupon, so the tenth sandwich is free. A fun calculation for the best of the best.


Also amusing: The Roman calendar, which is the Julian calendar applied throughout the Roman Empire, but from area to area the beginnings of the year were different. Until the year 153, the year began on March 1 in Rome, on August 29 in Egypt and in what is now Turkey, and in Russia it was September 1. In the western Mediterranean, in England, in Germany and in Switzerland it was December 25 and in Britain March 25.


Most years were not numbered at all in the different empires. They named the years after the acting consuls or also after the foundation of the city of Rome. Later in the West they came to the Christian time calculation, but in the east the time calculation was still oriented "at the creation of the world" for a long time. And this was according to our time calculation accordingly quite exactly in the year 5509 before Christ.


For those for whom this introduction to the Julian Calendar was "quite nice", but who really want to know much more about it: You are in good hands with the really detailed Wikipedia article. And we will guide you there, too


No joke, no kidding ... please do not feel "taken for a ride": In fact, you can make up well over 1.25 billion combinations from this composers calendar. In this style. You have the choice between 36 masters of composition. From Bach to Beethoven, from Tchaikovsky to the American Sousa. Only in which month which composer then finally appears, that is unfortunately not possible for us to realize. Sorry. And the title page of the calendar ... it also always remains as above.



By the way, if you're the first to prove mathematically that there are far fewer combinations, you'll get one of the 99 music calendars "for free". And that in the size A3 (... check here, what's that in centimeters and inches). Also the dispatch inside Germany "is on us". The legal process is of course excluded. Here – in the store, in the composers calendars area – you can see all other calendar sheets, with exactly the gentlemen composers, which we ( ! ) have selected for you to a calendar. Then it is a calendar at the price of the hot off the press calendars. Here you can also explore all 36 composers. If you like this idea, that means you choose, then a small surcharge of € 10* on the price of the hot off the press calendars will be added. Your fastest way to the store: Click here.

Classical Composers do not always have to be presented "dusty". Sorry, we mean "historical", correctly. It also works quite modern. Hip and cool. This composers calendar, which you can assemble for yourself, is particularly special. Or for your grandfather, your aunt or your favorite music teacher. Or perhaps ... you find the proposal and the selection of my Publisher exciting enough and save yourself not only the agony of choice but also the € 10*. Here's the selection, here are 36 masters of the musician guild.




The Egyptian Calendar


The Egyptian Calendar was a so-called natural calendar with stellar orientation. The star Sirius was the pivot and time was oriented at that time to the annual Nile flood, the flooding of wide areas by the lifeline Nile. Already in the year 237 the previous Egyptian Calendar was reformed, and a leap day was introduced. One tinkered a so-called Heriu-renpet day into the "normal years". But when the inventor died, they buried the leap day with him. Since this time there were the two Egyptian calendars so a little bit side by side.


The fun with the calendar had begun in Egypt with the Egyptian Civil Lunar Calendar and the Sothis year, which had an average of exactly 365.250015 days.


By the way, Egypt has not been crafting according to this calendar for a long time, which is relatively well known. However, the fact that the Nile flood has also ceased to exist since the construction of the Aswan Dam is relatively unknown. By the way, it was built in 1964, at the latest at this time we would have had to change our orientation anyway. By the way, here's tons more info on the dam and tons more info on the Egyptian Calendar. Of course ... this info on a website about calendars.


Regarding the Bach calendar on the left: There is only one Bach! That was already said by the "Old Fritz". However, there are many, many artists who painted a portrait of Bach. The most famous is without a doubt Elias Gottlob Haußmann, who also lived in Leipzig at Bach's time. This calendar above reflects 270 years of painters portraying Bach. In black and white, this calendar is a noble Bach calendar and will fit in many a room where other calendars are less likely to fit. Also in this this calendar are twelve of the greatest tributes from twelve famous people. On the right side is a Bach calendar for free spirits. You can get to all twelve monthly pages in this calendar by clicking on the shop link.


Please support our Bach Mission, even with the purchase of a music gift not in one of the five Bach shops  learn more here.


The next composers calendar, completely without bright colors: This design is a landscape format and looks simply cool in any modern living environment. You can discover all twelve monthly pages in the Composers Calendars Corner. Choose the right "department" and then click on the corresponding button below the calendar. Scroll down below the price information and there it is ... the inner workings of the calendar that interests you.


Yes, that's more or less how you know Mr. Mozart. And you also know the most famous pictures of many other famous composers. But, if you find them somewhere on the internet, you can't make a calendar from them yet. There is no copyright problem, because they are all old enough, the portraits. However, the resolution is simply not good enough. Not good enough by far. So a young painter has simply repainted these beauties for our Bach Mission. Very close to the original, with a slightly different background and everything is then laid out to twelve really cool monthly pages. This calendar on the wall, a piano in front of it and a musician playing on it. Isn't that a mentally perfect overall musical concept?!


Two more cool composers calendars. On the left there are twelve photos of famous composers monuments. We consider this calendar one of the conservative ones, because these are "just great photos". The same goes for the calendar on the top right. It, too, is among my Publisher's conservative jewels. Twelve well-known portraits of the masters of the art of sound are portrayed. Click here to visit the store ... and you can explore the two times twelve monthly sheets.



Of course, at a calendar publishing house that specializes in music themes, in great Classical Composers and in Johann Sebastian Bach, you will also find very young, cheeky and cool portraits of Bach, of many composers ... and on the subject of music anyway. 99 calendars, so 33 music calendars, 33 composers calendars and 33 music calendars ... there is indeed one for every taste. Later, another three calendars were added and now there are 99 + 3 music calendars.



The Moon Calendar


The Moon Calendar, or the Lunar Calendar, is based exclusively on the course of the moon. And if you want to know it exactly, it is the "Free Lunar Calendar" or the "Unbound Lunar Calendar". In one of the world religions, the calendar is based on the lunar calendar: That is in the Islamic Calendar. Exciting is the fact that a person who is 34 years old according to Islamic tradition ... but counted in solar years, can also be only 33 years old. 100 solar years correspond to 103 years according to the Lunar Calendar. The Prophet Mohammed decreed the reuse of this Lunar Calendar in the 7th century, although the Julian calendar was already in use in the rest of the world. In summary, you can regard the Lunar Calendar as quite complicated and who has fallen in love now with the topic ... or simply only wants to know more exactly ... for him or her it goes on here with pleasure. Here you get also info regarding a "Tebtunis Lunar Calendar". And on this website you can get as much information about the moon calendar as you can about a biorhythm calendar.


What fantastic postage stamps there are on the theme of Johann Sebastian Bach and on the theme of composers. "Bach 4 You", my Renate Bach Publishing House, offers four calendars on the theme of "composers on stamps".  First, there are two Johann Sebastian Bach calendars with two times twelve different individual Bach stamps. Next, there are two times twelve individual stamps, each featuring a different composer a full twelve times. To the shop?




The Biorhythm Calendar


The Biorhythm Calendar is an exciting alternative approach to dealing with life. First, it is best to imagine a sheet of paper of letter size that you place in front of you in landscape format. Using a horizontal line, divide the page into two halves, an upper and a lower one. From left to right one day follows the other, on the left day 1, on the right day 30, 31 or 28. The human rhythm, so the idea of the Biorhythm Calendar, runs in three waves: There is the female wave, the male wave and the spiritual wave. All three oscillations begin on the zero line, from the moment of birth, preferably at the exact hour. The waves take different amounts of time to complete a cycle. Each wave is above the center line half the time, the other half below. Thus, even after a short time, there is an opposing up and down of the waves in the most diverse constellations. The rule now states that a particularly critical day for a test person exists when the male or female wave crosses the above-mentioned horizontal line. If both waves are in the upper, the positive area, then a particularly positive phase results for the time of the common presence in the upper area. If both waves are in the lower half, then a negative default results for this common time. However, this thesis is not scientifically proven, but some people swear by it. The wave movement begins – as mentioned – with the birth and is also oriented to it, if you experiment with it for the first time 50 years later. The male line is also the physical, the female corresponds to the emotional state. The rhythms are physical 23 days, emotional 28 days, and mental 33 days from crossing the horizontal to the next such event. There is some exciting reading on the subject and, of course, you can find an exciting online calculation on the internet. 


There are many portraits of Bach. Actually there are ... really very many. Some of them are world-famous, others are still painted by renowned artists and infinitely many there are of the many artists of whom no one has ever heard. Vivian is unfortunately rather ... still ... such an artist of the last category and for our Bach Mission she repainted the most famous portraits of Haußmann, Ihle and Rentsch as well as other Bach paintings in her very personal style. And in the meantime, this also became an exciting, great calendar, another Bach calendar.


In many years, you also get to know many young artists, who all have their own personal style of painting. We gave them all a "completely free hand" to paint Mr. Bach ... or better ... the Haußmann portrait of Johann Sebastian Bach, in their very own personal style. We then put together twelve styles of very different artists to create a really cool, modern calendar about the Thomas Cantor. Another of the 33 Bach calendars.




The Farmer's Calendar (... At Least in Germany)


A funny thing right at the beginning: There is a German Farmers' Calendar (... please don't consider this link too serious), but there is also a Swiss Farmers' Calendar. And there is a Young Farmers' Calendar. In addition, there is an Old Farmers' Calendar, the so-called Mandl Calendar. But we are now particularly interested in the 100-year-old Farmers' Calendar. Or also the farmers' rules based on the 100-year-old calendar. This Old Peasant Calendar has been published for 300 years. Approximately ... and pretty much in the same form and shape. Now, if you're interested in all that much more: There is also a Salzburg (... Austria) Farmers' Calendar and the internet offers exciting pages on exactly this kind of calendar: Click here for the German Farmer's Calendar. Click here for the Swiss Farmers' Calendar. And here is the link to the 100-Year-Old Calendar.


What a charm: a combination of exciting historical motifs complemented by really cool, hip and modern works. And it's always ... Johann Sebastian Bach. A calendar that really comes into its element in DIN A3 format and larger (... check here, what that is in centimeters and in inches). You have to spend a lot of time chasing such treasures – the historical and the modern – to get twelve times two works in each style for one calendar. But, it has been accomplished: Take a look at the twelve monthly sheets. With one click to the store here.




The Perpetual Calendar


Here I have to give up, because it would be too complicated to explain it on one of my website pages. If you are now so enthusiastic about the subject of the calendar and also interested in it, then it is now good that you know it: That is, that there is the Perpetual Calendar. And here you get now to Wikipedia and there you can "read yourself clever".


What a cool wall decoration, what a hip idea. A calendar for kids to hang in their own room or, even better, to give it to grandpa and grandma. It's a Bach calendar to color. Twelve stations that were significant in the life of Johann Sebastian Bach.




The Pregnancy Calendar


Actually, it is called Parents Pregnancy Calendar and the German magazine "Parents" (... "Eltern") offers it online. It lasts exactly 40 weeks and accompanies young couples and expectant mothers through pregnancy. By the way, there are no year-round pregnancy calendars for humans. And whether there is something like that outside Germany, is what we don't know. Well ... googling does help ... there is the KidsHealth webiste.




The Maya Calendar


The Maya Calendar is an astronomical calendar. In short, it can be summarized that the Mayans had invented the calendar, that is, the Maya (... or Mayan Calendar) and then died out for unexplainable reasons.


Well, of course that was not the case. In short, you can sum up that the calendar is based on a twenty system and was used for ritual purposes, among other things. One calendar round lasted 52 years. This system is one of the few that is not based on the rhythm of the sun and the moon. The whole thing is so complicated, however, that the link to an explanatory website should suffice here. Of course, it is, as so often ...  to Wikipedia.


"Music Calendars, Music Calendars". On a website with this title and with an offer of 99 music calendars from a tiny Publishing House, the last but one motif on the start page cannot be anything else but another cool music calendar, or more precisely in this case, a stylish composers calendar.


Okay ... two more music calendars. On the left side it's a 2024 music calendar, on the right side it's one more composers calendar (... a music calendar at the same time). ✓✓




“Bach 4 You” ... That Is More Than Pipe Organ Calendars, Composers Calendars, Bach Calendars and Music Calendars


On the left it is a Bach calendar with really special Bach treasures. On the right it is the Bach statue or, alternatively the Bach monument. In the shop you get this work in two sizes.


Did you know that the Publishing House "Bach 4 You" is a specialist when it comes to music T-shirts, music calendars, music mugs and music cups? You can find out more here.


Does it need any explanation? Of course. 33 composers calendars each portray twelve masters of Classical Music. With 33 + 3 calendars, it's different. One Mozart Calendar, one Beethoven Calendar, one Luther Calendar, and 33 Bach calendars each feature only one of the masters.


On the left a Bach calendar, on the right a Bach T-shirt.
