‘I needed the plangent, plaintive music of the 12th century to understand Hugo’s pain’ – Katherine Langrish

We’re getting medieval this week on The Undercover Soundtrack. My next guest will be Katherine Langrish, the acclaimed author of several fantasy novels for children and young adults, including the Troll Fell trilogy. She says she usually has to write in silence – but her latest novel, Dark Angels, didn’t come alive until she found her way to the 12th-century troubadour songs of southern France. Pull up a chair on Wednesday and let her spin you a magic, medieval tale.
