It was not "theory", just a thought. It's great that composers these days want to use such massive chorus parts in their scores, but is every score really needs such approach? I agree that Williams' idea to use big chorus in Episode I was a great one and probably it was in some way a starting-point of popular use of chorus these days, but I'll say that Basil Poledouris move the imagination stronger some 20 years later when he used chorus in Conan the Barbarian score.

No offence taken
