Up close and Personal
Good to see that someone else likes this new 2012 pipe organ calendar enough to buy one! 
The detail in many organ facades is fascinating - but it's just this that the ordinary person in the audience or pew just can't see. What a wealth there is: The intricate carving, exquisite inlay work, fine gilding and even, on occasions, the funny little additions that are the result of a private joke of the artist or architect. That's why I designed this calendar, so that those not fortunate enough to get closer can see some of these beauties for themselves. The cover photo, by the way, shows the front of the smaller gallery organ in the Marktkirche, Halle, which is supposed to be the organ that Handel began learning on. See the individual pages
