euphony : the quality of being pleasing to the ear.

woebegone : sad or miserable in appearance.
erroneous : wrong; incorrect.
ethereal : extremely delicate and light in a way that seems not to be of this world.

I don't think crescendo works here, because it means: a progressive increase in intensity. However, we know that the shelling both stopped and started suddenly. The other two options for (i) don't work either.
