What are the Renaissance period stylistic features present in Weelke's, 'Sing We at Pleasure'?

This late renaissance piece has mostly syllabic text underlay, and is unaccompanied. There is a focus on light dotted rhythms and a primarily major tonality, which was a shift from the earlier 'minor' modes which dominanted the 15th century works. Moreover, the use of 5 part voices, all written for male performers is important, as higher female soprano lines were introduced much later in choral history. all of the parts are highly imitative, relating to the tenor line.
