"Still, Still, Still" is an Austrian Christmas carol and lullaby. In German, its first line translates to "Hush, hush, hush, for the little child wants to sleep!" The melody is a folk tune from the region around Salzburg, and appeared for the first time in 1865 in a folk song collection of the founder of the Salzburg Museum. Correlated to Sound Innovations for Concert Band, Book 2, Level 2, this lovely setting for young band provides opportunities for expression and lyricism on any holiday concert.
