OH THANK GOD. That was like my favorit cue ever written.

Yes, John composed all of the music for the Chamber of Secrets. Ross merely had to use those themes and the material from the previous movie to make a score of his own. One could say he did 'compose' the score for the film, as he had to orchestrate and arrange the cues to fit the movie -- hence the term *adapted*.

What matters if the cue was written by Ross or John? You liked it and not liking it because John didn't 'write' it is idiotic. Frankly, while the meat of the score was fine, Ross's orchestration is too dark. The 'bass' of most of the cues is too low and fatigues the ear too often for my tastes.
