Half-Minute Songs

(1911)

Jacobs-Bond published her collection of Half-Minute Songs in 1911 after she had started her own publishing company, Carrie Jacobs-Bond & Son. All of the songs set short, witty texts by Carrie Jacobs-Bond herself.


A collection of 12 of her Half-Minute Songs is available through Classical Vocal Repertoire at Classical Vocal Repertoire in their Catalog of Publications.


About 100 years later, Jacobs-Bond's Half-Minute Songs inspired composer William Bolcom to compose his song cycle Minicabs (2010).
