It's Your subjective opinion about mediocrity of LOTR scores. And the chorus makes sense not because it's pseudo-gothic, but it's purpose is to enhance monumental visuals of the film and be representative of several races & beings in film (notice that chorus sings there in Mordor langauge, Elvish etc.). LOTR movies were enormous commercial successes (and in a way artistic too) but I agree with You that they haven't such magic as films like "Willow" or "The Neverending Story". It's a pop-culture, but what did You except? Were the Tolkien books aimed at sophisticated critics or massive population? Star Wars prequels looks poor in compare to LOTR trilogy, Lucas should never done them...
