"In a recent master class hosted by Joyce di Donato she taught one of the
students how to develop a trill and mentioned that contrary to Horne's
notion that you had to be born with a trill, you could develop one with
constant practice."

Actually, Horne said on a 1970 Singer's Roundtable that she did not think a 
singer had to be born with a trill but that it could be learned.  Sutherland 
(on the same SR) disagreed and thought a singer was born with a trill.  But 
she did say that at some point the singer had to analyze what they were 
doing to make the trill and work on perfecting it.

Arroyo (same SR), in her typically humorous way, opined that some were 
born with it and some acquired it, provoking laughter from the other two 
ladies and a quip from Sutherland that Arroyo was "sitting on the fence."
