Born: before 1459

Died: 30 October 1522

Biography Mouton was appointed écolâtre-chantre at Notre Dame, Nesle in 1477 and by 1483 was maître de chapelle and a priest, having presumably reached the required age of 25. He held posts at Amiens (1500), Grenoble (1501), and from 1502 was attached to the French royal court. In 1518 he succeeded Loyset Compère at St. Quentin where he was buried, the now-lost headstone reportedly naming him "Maistre Jehan de Hollingue, dit Mouton". Among his pupils was Adrian Willaert.
