The local (= Toulouse, France) regional anthem and the only composition Deffès is remembered for. The title page bears the Toulouse city coat of arms. A much used and crumpled copy from the uploader's music library, to be replaced if a more presentable copy comes along. All Toulouse devotees know this song, and their knowledge of the occitan language is mostly limited to its lyrics, as it is always sung in that regional tongue.
