Aliases: Johannes Prioris; Denis Prieur – possibly derived from "De Veurste" or "De Vorste"

Died: ca. 1514
Biography Some confusion is caused by a different "D. Priori", organist of San Pietro, Rome, in 1491, now identified as Johannes Brunet. Besides likewise being active in Italy, our Prioris is called maître de chapelle to the French royal court of Louis XII in 1503, 1507 & 1512, but his name is absent from descriptions of the king's funerals in January 1515. 6 masses, 12 motets, 5 Magnificats and 12 chansons survive.
