I thought yen lang is silent/silence and yen tinh is quiet

This is what I think it is a few months later (can confirm later):

  • yên lặng: adj used for describing someone or something as being quiet

  • yên tĩnh: adj used for describing a place or event as being quiet

Ie. Rowdy kids and telling them to be quiet - yên lặng. Ie. Empty church/temple - yên tĩnh

yên lặng is "calm, silent, quiet"
yên tĩnh is "quiet, peaceful"
