The Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons, the fifth album by English folk group The Unthanks and the first to be recorded live, was released on 28 November 2011. Its extended title is: Diversions, Vol. 1: The Songs of Robert Wyatt and Antony & the Johnsons – Live from the Union Chapel, London.
In a four-starred review, The Observer called the album "A triumphant excursion".David Fricke at Rolling Stone magazine said there was "a silvery deceptive spine running through the sisters' Earth-angel voices". Reviewing the album for BBC Music, Martin Aston was struck by "hearing You Are My Sister sung to each other by sisters in blood as well as spirit, the arrangement and tone touching rather than cloying".
Writing in The Independent on 27 November 2011, Nick Coleman said that "The Hegarty songs respond slightly better to the treatment than do Wyatt's, with the exception of 'Sea Song'." MusicOmH said: "In a largely flawless set, the Antony & The Johnsons songs in particular are luminously beautiful, perfectly suited to the sisters’ passionate, breathy vocals and McNally’s elegant arrangements" but felt that The Unthanks are "at their best when providing a mixed palette of the centuries-old music of their native county and their own unique takes on the work of some of today’s most interesting performers. Just focusing on the latter, they’re marginally less interesting."
