Verve had a 'Folkways' series which included classical recordings from the Polygram/DG catalogue.  For example, tenor Fritz Wunderlich.  They had a number of non-jazz issues but the catalogue varied considerably but items often went out of print.

  Off the top of my head I can think of several non-jazz verve 
  recordings including the first album by Zappa and the Mothers of 
  Invention, The Blues Project, and there are folk recordings by Dave 
  van Ronk, Patrick Sky and quite a few others.
