He looked habitually and essentially mellow, as though he had been a mellow baby born into a mellow class, a ripe and juicy little boy.
Он так и дышал привычным, неизменным и непоколебимым благодушием – казалось, он и родился благодушным младенцем в благодушной семье и рос толстеньким и аппетитным ребенком.

--the former rising on the night air, from its first low mellow notes to a piercing shrillness that gradually died away on the waters; and the latter bellowing through every cranny of the ship, like the hollow murmurs of distant thunder.
Первый звук вырос в ночном воздухе от низких густых нот до пронзительной резкости и постепенно замер в волнах; а второй прогрохотал в каждом отсеке фрегата, как глухой раскат отдаленного грома.

Someone was climbing the thick ancient creeper clinging to the mellow brick walls of the Jacobean manor house.
Кто-то карабкался вверх, цепляясь за ветки вьющегося растения и осыпающиеся кирпичи барского дома, построенного еще в эпоху короля Якова I.

On that wonderful old piano even my playing sounded right, and Dr P. was an aged but infinitely mellow Fischer-Dieskau, combining a perfect ear and voice with the most incisive musical intelligence.
На замечательном старинном рояле даже мой аккомпанемент звучал пристойно, и П. предстал перед нами как немолодой, но бесконечно выразительный Фишер‑Дискау, совмещавший безупречные голос и слух с тончайшей музыкальной проницательностью.

The latter promptly made his appearance, had some lunch after saying grace, and in his sedate, mellow baritone began saying first of all that the clerks were in duty bound to pray night and day for their benefactors.
Тот немедленно явился, закусил, помолясь, и своим солидным, густым баритоном заговорил прежде всего о том, что приказчики обязаны денно и нощно молить бога за своих благодетелей.

Thou glidest, now, into a graver air; an air devoted to old friends and bygone times; and in thy lingering touch upon the keys, and the rich swelling of the mellow harmony, they rise before thee.
Но вот ты переходишь к более важной мелодии, к мелодии, посвященной прошлому и старым друзьям, и они возникают перед тобой из легкого прикосновения к клавишам и нарастающей волны звучных аккордов.

I'd never been behind the counter before, and was vaguely surprised to see that the floor here was just like the rest of the store-mellow dusty hardwood.
До сих пор мне не случалось заходить сюда, за прилавок ее ломбарда. Пол здесь был деревянный и пыльный, как и везде в доме.

Her voice was a rich mellow contralto, and she always spoke quietly and gently, with a droop of her long eyelashes, and a faint smile on her pale face.
Голос ее был густой и звучный контральт, но она всегда произносила спокойно и тихо, всегда несколько опустив свои длинные ресницы и с чуть-чуть мелькавшей улыбкой на ее бледном лице.
