Program Notes

The famous Austrian holiday folk carol is set in a unique and inviting style and adapted for use by bands with unique instrumentation. Subtle melodic lines in this holiday “lullaby” paint a calm and serene musical portrait with all the delightful images of the holiday season.

- Program Note by publisher


Still, still, still is an Austrian Christmas carol and lullaby. In German its first line is "Still, still, still, weil's Kindlein schlafen will!" ("Hush, hush, hush, for the little child wants to sleep!")

The melody is a folk tune (authorship unknown) from the state of Salzburg. The tune appeared for the first time in 1865 in a folksong collection of Maria Vinzenz Süß (1802–1868), founder of the Salzburg Museum. The words, which run to six verses in German, describe the peace of the infant Jesus and his mother as the baby is sung to sleep. They have changed slightly over the years but the modern Standard German version remains attributed to Georg Götsch (1895–1956). There are various English translations.
