That in general; but to Mr. Tikhomirov they sing in chorus that his programme is based on too superficial a knowledge of the contemporary condition of our industry.
Это — вообще; а г. Тихомирову они напевают о том, что в основе его программы лежит слишком поверхностное знакомство с современным состоянием нашей промышленности.

In a lull I heard the flying feet of a man, a shout, and a far-away chorus of lost spirits singing somebody’s requiem.
Когда наступало недолгое затишье, я слышал чьи-то быстрые шаги, крики и отдаленное хоровое пение. То чьи-то заблудшие души исполняли реквием.

It was the chorus of love and of nature – the chorus of the whole wide world; and in the very sky the clouds were radiant with rapture, as to those two children Love revealed the Eternity of Life.
Животные, растения, камни, желавшие ввести двух этих детей в царство вечной жизни, – все праздновали победу.
