You know, yesterday while listening to Debney's "The Passion" I also had the same conclusion, about the over-use of chorus in recent years, especially since everyone saw how really good adapt the chorus as Howard Shore showed in first "The Lord of the Rings" score. Don Davis did phenomenal job in "The Matrix Revolutions" especially, then came Debney and now Silvestri. It seems that everyone wants to utilize huge orchestra and huge chorus these days (Shore again in "ROTK", Beltrami in "Hellboy", Ottman in "X2" etc.). It's great, but it's slowly becoming tiresome, especially that IMHO chorus' role is to enhance the depth of music and orchestral music especially, not to lead the music. They (composers) probably listen too often to "Carmina Burana" these days...
