The Proteus ensemble was founded by Stephen Shellard in 2013 and consists of professional singers drawn from all parts of the UK. Named after the Greek sea–god Proteus, the group takes its musical raison d’etre from the adjective ‘protean’ which means ‘versatile’ or ‘capable of assuming many forms’

The group’s first CD, on Regent Records, Serenity, Courage, Wisdom, was recorded in Worcester Cathedral and launched at their inaugural concert in Pershore Abbey as part of the 2014 Worcester Three Choirs Festival. It was met with unanimous praise in the musical press with MusicWeb describing it as ‘a disc…for profound literary and musical enjoyment’. The group’s second disc of music by the comtemporary composer Paul Fisher is to be released by Regent Records later this year.
