How to display names (composer etc.) alphabetically in album list?

How to display names (composer etc.) alphabetically in album list?
I use AlbumArtist.displayFormat={$ComposerSort^^^ / } so that I can see all the composers by lastname, firstname that appear on the album. (The names appear next to the album cover in the album list.)

The composers are displayed in the order in which they appear on the album tracks.

Is there any way I can can get MinimServer to display them in alphabetical order?

I.e., instead of:
Hindemith, Paul / Britten, Benjamin / Doráti, Antal / Haas, Pavel / Ben-Haim, Paul
I would be able to see next to the album:
Ben-Haim, Paul / Britten, Benjamin / Doráti, Antal / Haas, Pavel / Hindemith, Paul

I can of course manually edit the Album Artist field into alphabetical order (and hence leave out the AlbumArtist.displayFormat={$ComposerSort^^^ / }) but it means HUGE amount of work. (I wish Masstagger could alphabetically correct the Album Artist field for me but I haven't been able to find a script.)
