I imagine these short pieces as a variety of chants, or prayers, which are shared by the four reciters who take turns in the chanting. They follow and comment on each other and, sometimes, they join into a larger stream, and then separate again, slide into smaller active units. All the time, though, they are bound by the same focus and direction, trying to stay together, moving towards a peaceful and harmonious union.
