Which one is best? Depends entirely on who is playing it, and how well they play...

I like the range of the tenor best...but then, I'm a violist, so I tend to lean toward the "inner voices" and middle-range instruments.

I play soprano, alto, tenor and baritone. I think tenor is probably the easiest to play. Soprano is definately the hardest.

Default Soprano

A soprano is a singing voice with a vocal range from approximately middle C to "high A" in choral music, or to "soprano C" two octaves above middle or higher in operatic music. In four-part chorale style harmony, the soprano takes the highest part, which usually encompasses the melody.

I think it depends on what sound do you prefer to play. For me I like the alto and I am playing with alto for 6 months now and I'm loving it.
