While John Adams was in attendance at the Second Continental Congress in Philadelphia, his wife Abigail was at home in Braintree, Massachusetts, running the farm, raising four children, and maintaining a lively correspondence with her husband on a wide range of topics. The sprightly text is adapted from Abigail's letter dated 31 March 1776, and strongly suggests the role women should play in the newly formed government. Set for treble chorus and piano in a style partially influenced by the music heard in Europe during the late 1700s. Duration: 3:20.
