Some people say it reminds them of Victorian London or maybe Sherlock Holmes. It was something like that in my head when I started working on this piece. But the theme shifted to a long journey across the Atlantic to America. Golden Door is a nickname for Ellis Island. Reading materials from Ellis Island Museum of Immigration are often heartbreaking. Great Sorrow is a phrase from one of them.
