John A. West wrote sacred music. From a clipping in the Chicago Tribune, Sunday, July 4, 1880, "The second work is a secular cantata, entited "Dornroeschen" or "Little Rosebud," adaped from the German legend of the "Sleeping Beauty." This is scored for solo voice and chorus, with orchestral accompaniment, by John A. West, who has studied with Mr. Frederic Grant Gleason for about three years. Each work was conducted by its own composer." According to the article, he attended the Hershey School of Musical Art.
