[Wolves] Converting a tree of oggs to mp3s

As a freedom hating jackdaw, I bought an MP3 player that doesn't play
oggs. This decision has proved incompatible with my ogg vorbis music

Can any of you recommend a tool to convert a directory tree of .ogg
files into a tree of .mp3 files?

My first attempt was with a2mp3

find Music/ -name '*.ogg' -exec a2mp3 \{\} \;

but a2mp3 doesn't create the necessary directory structure, and I
don't want to start shell scripting around it. I'm sure this must be a
solved problem.

With thanks, Alex
