Choirs aren't exactly new

Where did you people get the idea that prominent choral parts in film music is a relatively new development? Many of the first Golden era film composers were highly influenced by European opera and orchestral works from people like R. Strauss, Wagner, and Mahler. So no, I think choirs in film music dates quite a bit before Goldsmith.

On another note, its downright silly to say there's too much choir in film music today. That's like saying your sick of the string section.
