How many more did you want her to sing?  There are the big ones in the  
Council Chamber scene; what else?

I don't think of Angela Gheorghiu as one of our champion trillers.
Ruth Ann Swenson, whatever her flaws, has a superb trill --  world-class.  
There has been some discussion recently of whether Edita  Gruberova still trills 
well, but last I heard she continued to do so  beautifully.
Given their chosen repertoire, June Anderson and Natalie Dessay are  
surprisingly less than wonderful in this regard (even at her peak this was not  one of 
Anderson's strengths).
