revised What gives 'Winter Song' by Nico a medieval sound?
the song is in the key of G. the mode is not aeolian but dorian (aka harmonic minor) which means you will flat the 3rd and 7th note in the key you are in. Since this song is in G, you will have G,A,B flat, C,D,E and F ( F=your flatted 7th)

comment What are the ways to play chords on black keys?
Could you be more specific? Is it about the theory of building chords with black keys or the technique (like using thumbs on black keys) or what?

comment Where did the British names for different note lengths come from?
I just have to add that neither of my sources show their sources and I am by no means an expert in history so... take with a grain of salt! Both explanations sound believable, though.

@AlexanderTroup: Pretty much, yes. I'm not aware of any system of assigning "real" names to all chords. However, there's the concept of a prime form of a pitch class set (explained in the link in my answer), and these can be ordered systematically and named by Forte numbers. The C-major triad would then be 3-11, which is actually the name of every major and minor triad. Of course, this is probably not what you mean by a name.
