Max - I'm confused. The E above middle C is just below the passagio for a tenor (or the 
lowest end of it) - it's essentially the top of the middle range. (The first pitch of "Di quella 
pira.") Is it possible you meant an octave higher than that? (i.e. in the range of the Puritani 
high F, and also in the range where metal/hard rock singers usually wail?)

anybody sang any note higher than the E above middle C in chest voice, it would be a shout. 
The B-flat or C above that in chest voice would be an appalling scream.
