From the Bedroom to the Boardroom:What You Need to Say to Be Heard: A Conversation with Maria Smith, Conscious Communicator Georgie Nickell
Regina Ransom brings an ill-fated heroine to life in this erotic story about a surprise gangbang that finds Georgie reluctantly pleasing five men at once. From the first unexpected thrust into her mouth to the endless supply of semen she´s forced to swallow, she ends up making sure all are satisfied. When, in a daze, she thinks about the orgasms that course through her in the process, the rough and reluctant gangbang she unknowingly encouraged might not be so bad after all. Warning: This audiobook contains very graphic representations of a gangbang with a reluctant participant. There is very rough sex and humiliation, including double team sex, deep throat, and reluctant semen swallowing. It is intended for mature listeners who will not be offended by sex acts between consenting adults. Here´s a preview: By the time she was done showering, primping, and dressing, she had to rush to her car in order to make it to the hotel. She finally knocked on the door at 7:59, hoping the rush didn´t show on her face. Charlie opened it, and she saw they had a nice enough room, with an extended living area that had a couch and a dinner table and a bedroom with a door. She walked to the table and set the manila folder down on it. She turned and asked where the other members of the band were. ´´We figured I´d go first, and then they would take turns with you. They´re hanging out in the bedroom.´´ That sounded silly to her. She didn´t want to do her presentation five times. She shook her head. ´´That doesn´t make any sense. You guys should all be in here at the same time.´´ Charlie got a quizzical look on his face, but he shrugged and called over his shoulder, ´´Guys. She wants us all at once.´´ She heard some exclamations from the room, but the doorknob turned, and the door opened. 1. Language: English. Narrator: Amber Grayson Vayle.

Arvo Pärt´s music resists the easily achieved peace of much Minimalist music of its time, even if its economy of gesture and expression - the joy taken in apparently simple beauty - has made him one of the iconic composers of our time. Such beauty is not simply achieved, and Pärt has written slowly, again unlike many of his contemporaries, filling each new piece with quiet quirks of harmony and unexpected turns that make them as satisfying to perform as they are to hear. All the works on this album of music reflecting Pärt´s deep Christian faith derive from the ´tintinnabuli´ style which he created in the 1970s, in rebellion from an earlier embrace of Modernism. In Cantate Domino (1978), a simple melodic voice embraced by an accompaniment taken from the tonic triad - the bell-like sound inspiring the label. In the Berliner-Messe of 1990 there are certainly many moments of ascetic detachment but these are balanced with a compelling range of emotion: originally written with string parts, the Mass is here performed as it would more commonly be heard in a liturgical context, with organ accompaniment. The organ plays a central role in The Beatitudes (199X): granite slabs of sound come into focus over unyielding pedal notes, the message intensified in the silences. Intensity rises with pitch until the music is torn apart by the organ at the concluding Amen. Spiegel im Spiegel is a Pärt classic for its ineffable and seemingly inevitable progression, and makes no less haunting an effect than the violin-and-piano original in this arrangement for organ made in 2010. The other organ works are more imposing: Annum per annum, Trivium and Pari intervallo, all making full use of the Klais-restored organ of Leeds Cathedral. The cathedral´s musicians have made several well-received recordings for Brilliant Classics, of music by Maurice Duruflé (9264), Hendrik Andriessen (94958), Georgi Mushel (9279) and others. Of the Durufle, Gramophone´s reviewer wrote: ´Leeds Cathedral Choir...bright tone and honest, natural singing deliver very accomplished and satisfying performances. The choir are ably supported by the splendid accompaniments of the Skipton Camerata and organists Benjamin Saunders and Daniel Justin. It´s faithfully captured by the excellent recording... an enjoyable and rewarding two-CD set.´ As follow-up on their successful Duruflé recording (BC 9264) the splendid Leeds Cathedral Choir, conductor Benjamin Saunders and organist Felix Justin present choral and organ music by Arvo Pärt, the iconic Estonian master of New Spirituality. Included are the popular Berliner Messe, the Beatitudes, the complete organ works and Pärt´s most famous work, Spiegel im Spiegel, here played on the organ. Recorded in the spacious and generous acoustics of Leeds Cathedral, also featuring its magnificent organ. Booklet contains excellent liner notes, as well as the sung texts and the English translation, plus biographies of the artists.
