Listen to Codex argenteus

Codex argenteus has even inspired to contemporary compositions. Here you can listen to and download the score of Atta unsar - Our father in Gothic - by Sven Sandblom. You can also listen to a recital of the text.

Sven Sandblom is a retired officer, choral singer and amateur historian. While studying the Goths and Codex argenteus he was especially fascinated by the Gothic version of Our father. By composing modern music to the 1500 year old Gothic text he wants to contribute to a deeper understanding of the religious and cultural importance of this prayer and its validity through history.
