Subject: RE: Info on voice ranges
Yes, as far as I am aware soprano is tops. Coloraturo ornaments for a soprano are often trills and grace notes and such higher than the written note. So a soprano singing in a coloraturo style would use notes at the top of her range as ornaments.

The overlaps between voice ranges are ill defined, since (say) a trained contralto can reach notes that would normally be regarded as the soprano range.

this is interesting
