After the band Árstíðir published their video of “Heyr himna smiður” by Þorkell Sigurbjörnsson on YouTube (see below), we have had so many enquiries about this work.
There is a popular misunderstanding that Sigurbjörnsson had merely harmonized an old Icelandic hymn. This is of course far from the truth, as this amazingly moving piece is all his own composition. The poem, however, is very old, the oldest religious poem that exists in Scandinavia.
Sigurbjörnsson’s “Heyr himna smiður” is available for women’s, male and mixed voices and from us the cost is only IKR 267.- (approx. 2.3.- U.S.$). If you want to receive the work as a PDF file you will get 20% discount.
