If I play a Trostani, Selesnya's Voice while a Trostani is out will I gain 5 life?
Yes. The second Trostani entered the battlefield, triggering the first. The fact, that both die to the legend rule before that trigger can even be put on the stack doesn't matter. What does matter is the toughness of the second Trostani at the time it died. Continous effects like from Glorious Anthem or Curse of Death's Hold may raise of lower it, affecting the amount of life gained. The trigger uses Last Known Information (LKI) since the object it is looking for isn't there anymore.

Edit: Of course, you only gain life, if the first Trostani is controlled by you.
