Emelyan, who had not long been back from the church, was sitting beside Panteley, waving his arm and humming just audibly in a husky voice: "To Thee we sing..."
Недавно вернувшийся из церкви Емельян сидел рядом с Пантелеем, помахивал рукой и едва слышно напевал сиплым голоском: "Тебе поем..."

Play and childish mischief was forbidden us. We had to go to morning service and to early mass. When we met priests or monks we had to kiss their hands; at home we had to sing hymns.
Играть и шалить мне и Федору запрещалось; мы должны были ходить к утрене и к ранней обедне, целовать попам и монахам руки, читать дома акафисты.

When the miller saw her coming in the mill door he would come forward, all white with the flour dust, and wave his hand and sing an old miller's song that was familiar in those parts and ran something like this:
Увидев через мельничную дверь ее приближение, мельник, весь белый от муки, шел ей навстречу, махал рукой и пел старую мельничную песню, известную в этих краях, -- что-то вроде следующего:

He is fond of music too; at the card-table he is given to humming through his teeth, but with feeling; he knows by heart some snatches from Lucia and Somnambula, but he is always apt to sing everything a little sharp.
Музыку он тоже любит; за картами поет сквозь зубы, но с чувством; из Лючии и Сомнамбулы тоже иное помнит, но что-то все высоко забирает.

Perhaps it was only when people were somewhere near the starvation level that they had anything to sing about.
Может быть, людям только тогда и есть о чем петь, когда они на грани голода.

"The man I murdered used to stop me on the street when I was twenty-one, pick me up in his arms, kiss my brow, croon wildly to me, sing Rock-a-bye Baby, haul me into meat markets, toss me on the scales and cry, 'Watch it.
Я убил человека, когда мне исполнился двадцать один год. Он издевался надо мной: останавливал на улице, поднимал на руки, чмокал в лоб и баюкал, напевая "баюшки-баю".

With the same object, she would sing, just above her breath, when he opened his eyes, or she saw his brow knit into that faint expression, so evanescent that it was like a shape made in water.
С той же целью она начинала напевать чуть слышным голоском, как только он открывал глаза и на лбу у него, словно зыбь по воде, пробегали те чуть заметные морщинки.

It is a sin to sing where the dead are lying: and at that instant, in that room, the past of which he had spoken was dying, the past of the people met together in it.
Грешно петь там, где лежит покойник а в это мгновение, в этой комнате, умирало то прошлое, о котором он упомянул, прошлое людей, собравшихся в нее.
