What are the solfeggio notes for each voice part to sing in a chord.? For example playing a C-major, D-minor, A-minor, G-major in the scale of C major, what will tenor, alto and soprano sing in solfa notation for each chord?

In C major, movable Do sol-fa, C,D,E,F,G,A,B maps to Do,Re,Mi,Fa,So,La,Ti.
Once you know that, you can translate from note letter to sol-fa word any time you like. Whenever I say "F" you know it's Fa. Whenever I say "So" you know it's G.
The basic "building block" chord is the triad. It starts on the root note of the chord, then has the third and the fifth. So the Do chord is Do, Mi, So (in this case, C major). The Re chord is Re, Fa, La (in this case, D minor) and so on.
Why are some major and some minor? Because of the different number of semitones between notes. Do to Mi is 4 semitones. Re to Fa is 3 semitones. Confirm this by looking at a piano keyboard. It's true no matter what key you're in.
Which voice gets which note? Whichever you think sounds best.
Conventionally, the bass instrument or voice will take the root note. The other voices will take other notes. The highest voice often handles the overall melody. But none of these are hard rules.
You do need all three notes of the triad somewhere in the chord, in order for it to sound complete. However it's OK to have partial chords, if you like the way they sound. Always, how it sounds is what's important.
The voicings of those chords are not fixed so there are many, many ways to voice chord.
For example a C chord is spelled C E G which is also Do Mi Sol in solfege. You could give the bass Do, the tenor Mi, the alto Sol, and the soprano Do. Another valid combination would be leaving the bass Do, giving the tenor Sol, giving the alto Mi , and the soprano Do .
Almost any combination of those 3 notes will work. The other chords follow the same logic.
On the key of C major : C E G which is doh mi soh, I heard dat standardly or typically, soprano takes doh, alto takes mi, while tenor takes soh. Please I'd like to know how standard that pattern is. Although he said this can also be changed desirably for dynamics.
