Preview of English translation:

19. The Rics and Samans, forsooth, are speech, and the Yajus are the mind; and so those who perform with the Ric and Saman are speech, and those who perform with the Yajus are the mind. Hence nothing whatever is done, unless ordered by the Adhvaryu: when the Adhvaryu says, “Recite (the invitatory prayer)! Pronounce the offering prayer!” then those who perform with the Rik perform it. And when the Adhvaryu says, “Soma becometh pure: turn ye back!” then those who perform with the Saman perform it,—for speech speaks not but what is conceived by the mind.
