I hung a 55" LCD TV not too long ago and the thing weighed something like 35 lbs and the mount weighted almost as much as the TV.  I really don't think it matters all that much, because it's just not a lot of weight.  BUT you said cider block.  I'm assuming hollow block.  I'd use a few more of whatever you choose.  Maybe 8 instead of 4.
