I don’t have time to do the same… but as I said, the spacing savings of 
combined voices is quite easy to demonstrate:

%%%%  SNIPPET BEGINS
\version "2.19.32"

\new ChoirStaff <<
  \new Staff { \new Voice << { \voiceOne g'4 a' b' c'' d''1 } \new Voice { 
\voiceTwo g'4 f' d' e' g'1 } >> }
  \addlyrics { \lyricmode { One two three four five! } }
  \new Staff { \clef bass << { \voiceOne b4 c' g f e1 } \new Voice { \voiceTwo 
g4 g g, g, c1 } >> }
>>

\new ChoirStaff <<
  \new Staff { g'4 <f' a'> <d' b'> <e' c''> <g' d''>1 }
  \addlyrics { \lyricmode { One two three four five! } }
  \new Staff { \clef bass <g b>4 <g c'> <g, g> <g, f> <c e>1 }
>>
%%%%  SNIPPET ENDS

Regards,
Kieren.
