Hi Richard,

Welcome to the org-mode community!

What you describe should be the default behaviour.  But items with no
priority default to B so you need to drop the default priority below the
items you normally set a priority for (ie D if A, B, and C are the only
priorities you use).

See org-default-priority, org-lowest-priority

,----[ example org file ]
| * TODO [#C] Priority C task
| * TODO [#B] Priority B task
| * TODO [#A] High priority task
| * TODO Some other task
| (setq org-default-priority ?D)
| (setq org-lowest-priority ?F)

Result from M-x org-agenda < t

| -UUU:**--F1  foo.org        All L8     
| Global list of TODO items of type: ALL
| Available with `N r': (0)ALL (1)TODO (2)DONE
|   foo:        TODO [#A] High priority task
|   foo:        TODO [#B] Priority B task
|   foo:        TODO [#C] Priority C task
|   foo:        TODO Some other task
