ArlingtonCatholicHerald on Dec 3 2019 Matthew Brown, 15, a parishioner at St. Mark Church in Vienna, has played piano for Masses at the church since he was in sixth grade. Brown recently composed the “Mass of the Resurrection,” a four-part Mass setting, and St. Mark has started using his music for Masses. The “Mass of the Resurrection” features a “Holy, Holy, Holy,” “Memorial Acclamation,” “Amen,” and “Lamb of God.” The talented teen, who attends Bishop O’Connell High School in Arlington, said he enjoyed the challenge of composing the music.
