Abstract: The congruence subgroup $ {\Gamma _2}(2,4,8)$ of the group $ {\Gamma _2}$ of $ 4 \times 4$ integral symplectic matrices is contained in $ {\Gamma _2}(4)$ and contains $ {\Gamma _2}(8)$, with $ {\Gamma _2}(n)$ the principal congruence subgroup of level n. The Satake compactification of the quotient of the three-dimensional Siegel upper half space by $ {\Gamma _2}(2,4,8)$ is shown to be a complete intersection of ten quadrics in $ {\mathbb{P}^{13}}$. We determine the space of global holomorphic three forms on this space, which coincides with the space of cusp forms of weight 3 on $ {\Gamma _2}(2,4,8)$; it has dimension 2283. Finally, we study the action of the Hecke operators on this space and consider the Andrianov L-functions of some eigenforms.
