The Door Standing Open celebrates composer Joelle Wallach’s ongoing engagement with vocal music, with melody and with her conviction of their connection to the collective unconscious through folk music and musical gesture. The songs selected reach through several decades and touch many issues and interests in Wallach’s life. The two non-vocal chamber works grew directly from the songs represented immediately before them on the disc.
