Peter Gabriel has had a distinguished career after Genesis.  I don't think Greg has done much outside of ELP.

Hard to pick one.

But I think I prefer Greg Lake a bit.

I prefer Lake's voice, and I think he's a better and more accomplished instrumentalist.

Not to hate on Gabe, though.

Better at what??
 
Singing? They're both excellent.
Playing bass? I'd give that to Lake, since PG has Tony Levin to do that.
Playing guitar? Again, Lake.
Playing flute? Gotta go with PG there.
 
Since the only thing they both do is sing, I'll call it a draw.

I choose Gabriel as the more accomplished songwriter.

^ Exactly. 

Peter Gabriel gave us the psychological masterwork that was ...er..untitled III. All Greg Lake gave us was Lucky Man for cryin' out loud!

Okay, I'm exaggerating, but hey!
He gave her his town house and his racing horses. Each meal she ate was a dozen courses. She had a million dollars worth of nickels and dimes. She sat around and counted them all a million times.

Lake's voice is way less abrasive. Gabriel is one of the reasons why I can't stand Genesis.

Since it is stated that only voice, Greg Lake by a huge margin. I really like how he sings, and his performance on "Epitaph" is one of my favourite vocal moments in prog. I really don't like the way Gabriel sings, that's the one thing I dislike the most of classic Genesis.

Greg Lake has the best voice in prog imo. He's not just a vocalist, he's a highly accomplished singer.
I doubt Gabriel would pull off singing Jerusalem or Great Gates of Kiev with such force. Or Pirates and Hallowed be thy Name.

Greg Lake in the 60's and 70's > Peter Gabriel > Greg Lake now.  Won't vote.

For voice only, it's Lake, easily.  But Gabriel did a lot more with the voice he had and as such achieved more.

Vocally Greg Lake is miles better than Peter Gabriel IMO. Lake has a great, very rich tone to his voice.
A GREAT YEAR FOR PROG!!!
