Diamanda Galás - At Saint Tomas the Apostle Harlem (2017)

Diamanda Galás
At Saint Tomas the Apostle Harlem (live)

"At Saint Thomas the Apostle Harlem" documents Galas' volcanic May 2016 performances as Saint Thomas the Apostle church in Harlem, NY, described by the New York Times as "guttural and operatic, baleful and inconsolable, spiritual and earthy, polyglot and wordless, nuanced and unhinged". The concert, produced by Intravenal Sound Operations and Red Bull Music Academy, was composed exclusively of what Galas calls "death songs." Sung in Italian, German, French, and Greek, the performances include Galas' dramatic settings of the death poems by Cesare Pavese and Ferdinand Freiligrath, as well as interpretations of songs by Jacques Brel ("Fernand", "Amsterdam") and Albert Ayler ("Angels," sung by Galas, who has always believed that Ayler's work is also vocal music).
