Chattering would usually mean that the crowd is talking rapidly. It could also mean that the crowd is making trivial conversation - small talk. Using a thesaurus the word gossip also comes up. However, I think that would be a stretch unless it fits better with the context of the paragraph.

A group talking all at once.
