If you can work with 120 volts AC the wax motors used in appliances provide slow and silent motion

Or wrap them in foam to muffle the sound.

General Scanning (or whoever owns the company these days) makes many quiet servos, but they're just not in the same class as a hobby servo and will cost you accordingly.

Why ? Can you not just run them slower ? Generally, quiet ones have high quality gears and ball races.
