Music on Hold via FreeBSD Server

I have an existing FreeBSD 5.x server I'm trying to use to feed music or
announcements on-hold into our phone system (yeah - I know the legalities
of using copyrighted stuff.)
I installed a sound card, wired it up, and hacked together a simple little
script to run the mpg123 package to continuously playback a few mp3 files.
* What command-line program would you suggest for playing uncompressed
audio files in this scenario? There are hundreds of entries in Ports, and
I'd rather not spend a month trying them all.
* Has anyone else done something similar to this, and would you care to
share a script to keep it running continuously?
