Containing the Container

We have a large barrel composter that we turn quite often. We added a large variety of material over just a few days and the container was almost completely filled. That baby is cooking to the point that we wouldn't want to plunge our hand into the heat we're generating (we don't have a thermometer) and it looks like the contents have shrunk by almost a quarter overnight.

My question is: when there is so much hear, should the cover of the container be left open to get more air or is it more effective to keep it closed.
