Comment by Dr. Georg Fischer 
The calculation of the LCY in the lifetime of J.S. Bach does not respect any local calendar modifications. It computes Easter for years 1583 to 4099 A.C.  our calendar. Therefore the pages tell the month and day numbers of the Sundays and the Holy Days as we see them today, not as Saxonian people would have denoted them. Since Easter (and therefore most of the Holy Days) depend on the raising of the moon after the equinox  which is independent of human day numbering  the dates are accurate  from today's point of view.
The change of Julian to Gregorian calendar took place in Saxony and Thuringia on February 22, 1700, whereby ten days got lost. However, the context of the pages is the relation to the creation dates of J.S. Bach's cantatas. He didn't write them before 1700.
