The Denington Choral Series, as endorsed by former King’s Singer member Philip Lawson, is a range of choral works set in both SATB and SSA formats that will enhance the repertoire of both Christian and secular choirs. The lyricists and composers are proven songwriters that bring a wealth of experience to the choral market and have provided songs that cover a broad spectrum of styles and difficulty and should appeal to many choirs who regularly present music in churches or concert halls.
The Canadian composer Leonard Ballantine wrote both words and music for "Closer Than".
The words express the idea that God is closer to us than we sometimes think, and they are set in a mid-tempo ballad style, with a classic verse, chorus, middle section structure. The melody is mostly mirrored in 3rds and 6ths, but with frequent use of fuller harmony and the occasional wordless accompaniment, and the piano provides colourful support during and between each phrase.
