    Hi Tony,

    I’d be careful with translations. I’ve read other translations, which can create a different view of things. Having said that, I think you could read it as being formless and chaotic could mean having no control or order, something that would no doubt have been very important to a Medieval listener, and thus coming into a form, he is freed from the restraints of chaos.

    That’s just my take on it, I must say I’ll need to give it much more thought and have a look at the original Welsh, too.
