Most of the vocals I plan to record will be soloists with pretty exceptional range. In gospel music, lead vocalists tend to shout and hit pretty high pitches, but they can also get very, very soft (especially at the beginning of songs). What mic will capture that range the best with the least distortion?? Dynamic or Compressor?? What models would you recommend. I plan to get two and don't want to spend more than $300 each ($600 total).

This was a while ago so you probably figured it out. However, it is a condensor microphone you mean, not a compressor. However, you might want to use a compressor with a decent condensor microphone. Use a pop filter. You want to use a condensor microphone for vocals usually.
