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.

If you want to buy copies for choir you can get the following discounts:

  • 10-19 copies = 15% disc.
  • 20-49 copies = 30% disc.
  • 50-69 copies = 40% disc.
  • 70 or more = 50% disc.

We can send “hard copies” by post or send .pdf with permission to make x many copies (with pdf you will get 20% extra discount).

Order by sending us an email to itm@mic.is. You can pay with credit card via the PayPal payment system.
