gravité presque caverneuse

Could someone please give me an idea of what gravité caverneuse could mean in this context?

"Elle roulait les 'r' avec un accent metallique et faisait sonner les mots, on eut dit le bourdon fêlé d'une cathedrale. Cela donnait une gravité presque caverneuse à son enthousiasme"

Thank you/Merci!

    Something along the lines of:
    "which gave her enthusiasm a hollow and solemn note/tone"
    I understand that her voice resonates with a kind of hollow solemnity, like droning voices that echo in a cathedral.
