The narrator could hear the sound of the harness bells of his horse, sounds of the easy wind and the downy flake.

It suggests that the surroundings were very calm. Silence prevailed all around. So the narrator could hear even the sounds of the snowfall and the mild breeze. This adds to the overcast and mysterious atmosphere of the place.
