I know this is dredging up a relatively old thread but I do know quite a lot about this (because I'm a geek!)

Paul had the greatest range of the Beatles, a staggeringly enormous A1-G5 in full voice, and was totally comfortable with singing the higher tenor harmony which often went up to around the tenor high C (C5): here's a youtube video I made showcasing his range. See the video description to see what each note is and from which song.

John was a light baritone with pretty strong lows, who was out of his comfort zone around A4 but could get quite far above that if he really screamed (see Mother). With his highest screams in Mother included, although I'd argue it's not really singing, John had an impressive C2-Eb5.

Admittedly I haven't notewatched the other Beatles so much, but George was a low tenor with a very light voice, the lowest I've heard from him is E2 in The Ballad of Frankie Crisp and the highest a B4 from You (which to my mind is his best vocal performance).

Ringo was a standard baritone, who apparently felt the E4 at the end of With A Little Help From My Friends a very difficult note to hit.
