Gillard, Richard. (Malmesbury, Wiltshire County, England, May 22, 1953- ). The eldest of six children, he emigrated to New Zealand with his family when he was three years old. Writes, “I’ve had almost no formal musical training. I’m a self-taught guitarist and play mostly in a folk style.” Regarding “The Servant Song,” he says it “was first published in 1978 on a record album by Scripture in Song called “Father Make Us One” and has appeared subsequently in other Scripture in Song publications including a songbook entitled “Songs of Praise” which is widely used by New Zealand congregations.
It has also been recorded by the St. Pauls Singers of St Pauls Anglican Church. This album, called New Harvest introduces songs and hymns from their own songbook of the same name.”
