Apartment House 1776 is a 1976 composition by the American composer John Cage, composed for the United States Bicentennial and premiered by six orchestras across the country in 1976. The work was commissioned jointly by the orchestras of Boston, Chicago, Cleveland, Los Angeles, New York, and Philadelphia. In these performances, the work was performed together with Cage's 1975-76 orchestral work Renga.
In 1969, John Cage transcribed a two piano version of Erik Satie's 1918 music drama Socrate to accompany Merce Cunningham's choreography Second Hand. These Harmonies are derived from Cage's Apartment House 1776. In 1998, Irvine Arditti, along with pianist Stephen Drury, were in the studio to continue recording Cage's complete works for violin and piano. On the schedule was Roger Zahab's realization of 13 of the Harmonies from Apartment House 1776. For various reasons, that recording was not made. However, Arditti became inspired

With Cage's approval, composer and violinist Roger Zahab arranged the Thirteen Harmonies from movements of Cage's Forty-Four Harmonies, part of his 1976 composition, Apartment House 1776, for voices and instruments. The melodies used are hymn tunes by American composers of the Revolutionary period, such as William Billings, Supply Belcher, Andrew Law, and James Lyon, and Zahab selected 13 in recognition of the 13 original colonies.
