Mozart and Michael Turner

This may be news only to me, but posting here anyway just in case someone else finds it interesting. I'd often heard it said that "Michael Turner's Waltz" was written by Mozart - someone recently pointed me to the actual occurrence of the tune - it's K 536, in "Six German Dances", as the second half of #2:

Isn't it the same as the tune to the old Occitan song "Se canta que cante"? Mediaeval words, but I don't know how long the tune has been associated with them.

Oof. Turns out this was not news to anyone who'd read the notes at the end of the 2011 NSP Folio.
