Do you also notice that in Neodämmerung, especially in the very beginning it's hard to enjoy the choir on its own, the sound is poorly mixed with the rest of the orchester and you can hardly hear the choir in all that noise of the brass and percussion. It doesn't sound that natural too. Maybe some people with 10K Hi-Fi can enjoy it more than me but I also have about 2K system and it really doesn't sound so good. On the other side, the choral passages in Lord Of The Rings or Episode 1 are great to listen. In Navras, the mix is a lot better, you can hear the choir in a wide range.
Don't you agree or is it just me?

I agree, I enjoy the Navras version better. Not that Neodämmerung isn't great, I love it, but it doesn't strike me as much as Navras... that's just.... amazing.

Yeah, I kinda have the same feelings. The whole orchestral bombast is sometimes too big and taking over the choir chanting, which is incredible. And I have the same feelings about briliant low-piano rumble in the beginning of Neodammerung which after some 30 seconds faded away because of the monumental power of brass and chorus. At least it's represented in full glory (although not for long time) in Navras.
