Huntsman's Chorus is from the opera 'Der Freischutz' by Carl Maria von Weber.

 

Good catch, Chris! But upon listening to Von Weber's original it's obvious it got "country dancified" somewhere along the way, just like Fred Gilbert's 1893 song "Down the Road", Mozart's 1788 trio to "German Dance No.2" which is better known these days as "Michael Turner's Waltz", and William Felton's "Gavotte" c.1740 that is played today as the Morris tune "Ring O'Bells". Anybody else have any others to add?

You are right Gary, the 'b' music is quite different.

 

'The battle of Prague' is a good example of a tune being adopted by the 'folk' musicians. It turns up all over the place in collections. Jane Austen had a copy! The composer, Frantisek Kotzwara (c1745-1791), was notorious for his manner of death. Most bizarre!

 

Of course many played all sorts of music for all sorts of occasions, so were familiar with a wide range of pieces, not just 'folk'.

Do not assume that if a "traditional" tune turns up in the published work of a known classical composer then the composer had it first. After all, Aaron Copland did not write "Simple Gifts."

David, you are totally right. The same can be said of Stephen Foster, Robert Burns, even Bob Dylan and Paul Simon claimed authorship of tunes they nicked from Martin Carthy years ago. I'm just curious what other tunes in the classical repertoire are shared with the folk world, knowing full well that the folk tune might have come first. Of course, we need to add Fisher's/Fischer's/Fishar's Hornpipe to the list.

The Ukrainian folk song "Ти ж мене підманула" became C. M. von Weber's Opus 40, and Beethoven's Opus 107 #7 ("Schöne Minka").

 

The tune is included in W. Wakker's tutor for the Jack & Jackie English Concertinas.
