Nope, tenors do not SING high C in full chest voice...it is in mixed chest/head voice...Luciano Pavarotti is probably the only tenor who you could say sings C in full voice...even Db...as he did in the recording of Cujus Animan from Rossini`s Stabat Mater..even then it was a mixture somewhat...I know from experience as a young tenore lirico spinto that those notes would hurt if you attempted them in chest voice..and besides the voice will not allow you to sing them that way...thats suicide!

It is phisically imposible to sing a hich C with full chest voice. Every Tenor even Pavarotti or the famous caruso sing it in what is called mezza voce which is between head and chest, but as they press their lungs with their diafragm so hard, the voice is so similar to chest that you cannot tell the difference.
