How high do you sing?

I've been thinking about this one again since looking at King of Wonders and previously Give us Your courage et al- 1) Tim can go waaaaaaay high but I'm pushing it to get to an E... Courage has a top chorus note of C# (fine) but the wo-ow bit starts on F# (troubling), for example, and Wonders needs an E (confident) at the start of the chorus then needs an F (gonna make it, gonna make it...) for "we". When I capo 2 and play it in G it's better but then the verse is a bit low. 2) All of the above, of course, applies to male range - when Lex Buckley led at HTB I had to counterpoint or hamrnose the whole thing - presumably when a male leads the females are forced to do the same? Thoughts?
