Kent, an English organist, composer, and music copyist, "wrote church music in a post-Croft style without the distinction of Greene, mildly florid or mellifluously charming, of which his best-known anthem, Hear my prayer, for two solo trebles, is representative." Watkins Shaw and Donald Burrows in Grove Music Online.
