"The Waverly Consort, an ensemble of six vocalists and four instrumentalists specializing in the repertory of great music from the Twelfth Century through the Eighteenth Century, is celebrating its twenty-fourth anniversary during the current season. Organized at New York University in 1964, when Michael and Kay Jaffee encouraged fellow musicology students to join them in performing the music of the Middle Ages and the Renaissance, the Waverly Consort has flourished to become one of the premier early music ensembles in the concert world today. Its name is taken from Waverly Place, which runs by New York University's Washington Square campus."--page 18.
