Jean Pullois (Pyllois)

(? - 1478)

Franco-Flemish composer. Choirmaster at Notre Dame in Antwerp from at least 1443 to 1447 (Ockeghem sang under him in 1443-4), and a member of the Papal choir from 1447 onwards. His compositions survive alongside those of his greater contemporaries in important sources such as the Trent Codices (which contain a cyclic Mass attrbuted to him, but which may be the work of an english composer), but he was not considered good enough to win a post at the Burgundian court. His output consists mainly of songs but also includes some sacred music.
