Siginificance of Three Sookthams

May I request Dr. Sadagopan and others to enlighten me with the 
differences and similarities of Purusha Sooktham, Vishnu Sooktham and 
Narayana Sooktham?  Since all three are about Sriman Narayana, what is 
the protocol in reciting (order, time, occassion etc) and why do we 
have three?  I have read the excellent article by Sri V. Sundar on 
Purusha Sooktham.  However, I am confused about the interrelationships 
of the three mentioned herein.
