Transeamus usque Bethlehem' is a traditional Latin Christmas song, which was long erroneously attributed to the German Kapellmeister Joseph Schnabel (1767-1831). In the sixties of the twentieth century it became clear that Schnabel was only responsible for the instrumental arrangement. 'Transeamus' was written for four-part choir, with the men (in the role of shepherds) sing the first stanza and the women (in the role of angels) raids in the second stanzas. At the end, all four voices sing simultaneously. It became a kind of tradition to sing 'Transeamus' at the Christmas midnight mass in the Roman Catholic Church.
