An idea...

Set the defaultFolder to the path and then use the folders and 
files functions.  Or just files, depending on what you want.  I 
would guess the values returned would be completely empty.  Then 
restore the defaultFolder, perhaps.

Look in the Transcript Dictionary for these:
defaultFolder
folders
files
