Depends slightly on your XQuery processors (the spec doesn't define how
files are layed out etc.), but in XQuery it should be something like
for $doc in ( collection('/path/A'),
            collection('/path/C') )
return <a href='{ base-uri($doc) }'>{ $doc//title }</a>

If the HTML gets more complicated, I would advise to select the data
with XQuery and then transform it to (X)HTML using XSLT.
