If you would, take out a Williams cd and look for the orchestrators' names on it. You won't find them. Why? Because they don't do much. When Williams hands his music over to the orchestrators, the music is pretty much already orchestrated to the way he wants it, so the orchestrators don't really have to, nor do they, do much. He basically orchestrates most of it, then has others do the rest. That's why they don't get credited on any albums.
